John Edwards Is a ‘Tough Guy’: Ask His Wife

According to an article at, Elizabeth Edwards tells why her husband, former senator, former presidential candidate and former vice-presidential candidate, is “tough”.

Elizabeth Edwards tells voters her husband, Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards, is a tough guy “who can stare the worst in the face and not blink” in an ad set to start airing Wednesday in New Hampshire.

Elizabeth Edwards, who makes frequent campaign stops in early voting states for her husband, appears in the ad that the campaign hopes will highlight the couple’s marriage.

“I have been blessed for the last 30 years to be married to the most optimistic person that I have ever met,” she says as photographs from the campaign fade in and out. “But at the same time he has an unbelievable toughness, particularly about other people, and that is his ability to fight for them.” 

Edwards also has some comments about Hillary Clinton, one of her husbands rivals for the Democrat nomination:

“On Tuesday, Elizabeth Edwards said her husband would be a better advocate for women as president than his rival Hillary Rodham Clinton. She also said of Clinton: ‘Sometimes you feel you have to behave as a man and not talk about women’s issues. I’m sympathetic – she wants to be commander in chief.’ “

I bet that won’t be well received by the Hillary camp.  Begin the countdown for the Hillary response.
