Same reason she made the cover of National Enquirer 47 times.

Just think of MSNBC as the National Enquirer in drag.

I get it. She was a wannabe ‘Jackie Kennedy ‘ to the Breck Girl’s Nouveau JFK. Almost counts.
NOW, the Breck Girl can play the sympathy card AND get a hot, new wife to fit the bill for another run at the White House. It’s all about style over substance. Repackage and re-run.
Gotta get the last bit of PR out of the wife- and they’re using it.
Watch what happens next!

The media is covering this because she was a liberal democrat lawyer.

All democrats are deified by the media while all Republicans are demonized.

This is truly pathetic.
I know she was a favorite of the gays, but this is RIDICULOUS on MSNBC’s part.

If the the Democrats were thinking clearly they would believe her to be a bad Democrat.

She was aware of the past affair while John was running for President and while he was being considered as Obama’s VP choice. If he had been nominated for either post, the affair would have been revealed in the general election and would have cost the Democrats a lot electorally. Only a bad Democrat would allow the possibility of that happening.

She allowed it. Clearly she was selfish and did not put the Democrat party first.

Leave her alone media. She’s been through enough with her two timing slime ball “husband”. She’s gone.

Titillation - pure and simple. MSNBC is just giving the peasants what they want. Even here on FR - we have paid morbid attention to Elizabeth Edwards’ trials.

With the threatened demonstrations by that diabolical cult and whether John Edwards would show - are ratings fodder.

Amazing how many people on this site took the bait and actually had some respect for her. We should be a bit sharper than that.

"The media is covering this because she was a liberal democrat lawyer."
"All democrats are deified by the media while all Republicans are demonized"

Yup. You are exactly correct. And, because they're Democrats, expect taxpayers to be paying for a large portion of this circus.

Before we got Fox, and before it became rancid, we watched MSNBC. They had live coverage of the services for Barry Goldwater, Sonny Bono and Tammy Wynette (and no doubt others I can’t remember).

I think it is more like sympathy — and for someone who life tossed a lot really, really bad things she handled them in ways that I think deserve respect.

Oh Please can we just say good bye and get it over with? From what I’ve read over the years she was a phony as her husband was and while I feel bad for anyone who battles cancer she is no more important than the other millions who have.If I really said what I felt I’d be bounced out of here but let’s just say I have a song from the Wizard of Oz stuck in my head since I heard the news.....

My friend posted on his FACEBOOK page that she was an inspiration to women. REALLY? Because she talked about her cancer publicly. GEE, nobody does that these days. Look, anyone dying young is tragic. But to lionize this woman, who, by most accounts, was a raving bitch, is ridiculous. She was a shyster’s wife, and apparently a shrewish one at that. There, I’ve said it.

It’s amazing at all the photos that are being shown of Elizabeth and the Breck Girl, like they were still together and happy.

God will judge her in Eternity, but here on earth her "achievements" were mostly antithetic to fairness, honesty, life, and conservatism in general.

I don’t have the TV on, but y’all have GOT to be kidding!! I’m sorry the poor woman passed away, and I feel bad for her children, but she’s just the wife of a failed Vice-Presidential candidate! Surely such coverage of the wife of a failed Vice-Presidential candidate has never happened before. Give me a break.

One of my very close friends is in stage 4 right now...and just wrapped up round 4 of chemo in November. Her new scan results came back yesterday...two more tumors popped up in her lungs.

I highly doubt this young amazing mother of 2 will get coverage on MSNBC when she goes...but then again she wasn’t a former Senator/trial lawyer’s liberal wife.

My heart goes out to Edwards soul and that she is at peace from this horrid illness.

By the way...if anyone is interested my friend’s cancer foundation it is located here:

Sadly, at UMC - which means she will stand before the Lord says, “didn’t I do great things in your name” - and He will say, “depart from me, I never knew you.”

after viewing your ‘about’ page and then reading your post, I find you a total hypocrite...

Elizabeth Edwards was a daughter, sister, wife and Mother to four children, whether you approved of her or not, in death at least show respect.. and you call yourself a Conservative??? sad

You're entitled to be as clueless and detached from reality as you need to be.

That said, let me define "hypocrisy." Hypocrisy is honoring a woman whose life was devoted to the ghoulish promotion of snuffing out as many pre-born infants lives as possible. This person was Elizabeth Edwards. Is THIS a person worthy of your honor and "respect"?

That is not to be confused with celebrating her death, which isn't what you imply I've done.

Elizabeth Edwards was a daughter, sister, wife and Mother to four children, whether you approved of her or not, in death at least show respect..

I shall "respect" those who earn it. That's whether they were childless or produced 100 off-spring. I don't much care who or what evil you "respect."

and you call yourself a Conservative??? sad

Did you also defend the "honor" of Ted Kennedy and respect his life with this same vigor when he died as well?? He loved Abortion as well. And hated conservatism. I'm sure you honored Uncle Ted.

You are sad, confused person indeed.

+++Asked by Beth Corbin of Americans United for Separation of Church and State to explain how her faith beliefs inform her politics, Elizabeth Edwards gave an extraordinarily radical answer: She doesn’t believe in salvation, at least not in the standard Christian understanding of it, +++

She said she did not believe in an intervening God ..well I suspect she does not have one.

Mat 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

I am so sad for her, I hope her children find Christ
