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.

What did we do to deserve them?
It is ALWAYS nice to have 900+ FBI-files on hand???
She must've come to her senses and realized Hillary could make her life a living hell.
If I could feel sorry for a Dim, it would be for Liz Edwards. She's just trying to Stand By Her Man, implying a bit of "family values" to warm up the Dims to the thought of a Real Married Couple potentially occupying the White House.
The Clintons, of course, don't like being shown up.
I'm not afraid of Hil at all. She'll get destroyed, if we all can get our butts to the polls in November. FGS, she makes Ralph Nader look palatable as Chief Exec.
What a strange thing to say. I wonder if she'd been cultivating that thought for a time or it just fell out of her mouth unrestrained by thought.
And that's pretty pathetic when you think about it. I mean, Nader is about the goofiest pol I know.
Dennis Kucinichs gives him a real close race.
This is true.
How dare she be more joyful than Dear Leader...
I would say Most prisoners on death row are more joyful than Hillary. What has she got to make her joyful. Her husband is a lying whoremonger. Her daughter looks like Web Hubbell. Her lover is dead. Not sure how or why, She lives alone in the Closet? Half the US hates her and the other half is frightened by her. She hasnt had sex with a man since Vince died and she cant advertise sex with her own gender.She really is a pathetic character. Alone with only her mad insane desire to be a lady president. She wouldnt know love if it came up and bit her.
I can't figure out how NY could be taken by such a carpetbagger. What's wrong with Spencer? NY is a big state.
No. When anyone her age was around they said. YUK!!!!
"the city" rules in NY.
Sounds terribly familiar (WA State).
I'm sorry you're such a cranky ol' bag.
Geeez- Where I come from, 2 minutes is hardly a "conversation".
