You have to sympathize with the demonstrable resilience of Elizabeth Edwards as she slogs up 'til last night through the obligatory book tour round of public appearances and the oh-so-smarmy blunt and subtle questions about her marriage and he-who-shall-not-be-named.
Last night on The Daily Show—admittedly the first and only of her tour appearances I've actually watched, not being in need of a fix of gossipy innuendo and titillation, I do have a life, thank you very much—Elizabeth had the opportunity to advocate that the new health care program must include a public option in order to function in the best interest of the American people.
I've a hunch she's put up with a lot of the media b.s. of late just so she could make that point. Kudos to her.
And Kudos to Jon Stewart for treating her with the respect she deserves. And the rest of us in the audience, as well.
Too bad the "journalisticalwrestling" contingent who look down their noses at such as bloggers and comics can't rise to the same standard.
UPDATE: PLEASE READ AND TAKE ACTION FOR THE PUBLIC OPTION:
