Elizabeth Edwards is an attorney and the wife of John Edwards, former U.S. Senator from North Carolina, 2004 Democratic vice-presidential nominee, and candidate for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination. She is a true class act and has always been her husband's #1 supporter. They have three children, Cate, Jack and Emma (their son Wade died in 1996). Elizabeth Edwards has an incurable form of cancer and we wish her the best. To make matters worse, she recently learned that John Edwards had an affair with Rielle Hunter.
