Elizabeth Edwards, wife of White House hopeful John Edwards, apologized to Sen. Hillary Clinton after saying her choices in life have made her happier than the senator, a Clinton aide said Friday.
Clinton adviser Howard Wolfson said Elizabeth Edwards called the New York Democrat on Friday night just after she finished a debate in Rochester, N.Y., against Republican challenger John Spencer.
"Elizabeth Edwards called her and apologized," Wolfson said. "They had a good conversation."
Wolfson said the two spoke only for a couple of minutes.
"The senator thanked her for the call and wished her well on her book tour," Wolfson said.
The apology followed remarks by Elizabeth Edwards on Thursday at a luncheon sponsored by Ladies' Home Journal.
"She and I are from the same generation," she said of the senator and former first lady. "We both went to law school and married other lawyers, but after that we made other choices. I think my choices have made me happier. I think I'm more joyful than she is."
Clinton and Edwards, the former North Carolina senator and Democratic vice presidential nominee in 2004, are potential rivals for their party's presidential nomination in 2008.
Edwards said she didn't know the New York senator very well but said Clinton would be "a formidable opponent" for her husband.

Repositioning of the reptilians.
Someone bolder than I can add "Ft. Marcy Park" to the keywords.
What did we do to deserve them?
So now you have to apologize for being happier than Hillary? That would mean quite a long line, I would think.
So he not in the running.
Where's the barf alert, or was it implied?
Hillary hasn't been happy since about the age of 4, when some poor young lad told her "You're Not The Boss Of Me!"
It was just a matter of time -- came even faster than I thought it would.
Elizabeth Edwards can be a beeeatch..and we know Hillbilly is one...
IF that apology happened, (which I question)...it was ONLY for political reasons...ugh.
More BS from the continuing political charades.
Well, that didn't take long.
Is that like Arkancide?
Must have gotten a phone call.
It's like this whole thing was made up to get Edwards' name in the newspaper.
It's pathetic. He doesn't have a chance.
I report, you decide.
It is pathetic. I agree.
