Profiles in courage

I hope you saw John and Elizabeth Edwards on 60 Minutes the other night. If not, take a look.

John Edwards has always been a person that I've liked, but had a hard time focusing on. I hate to admit it, but his accent may have something to do with that. He and his wife, however, showed the world an honesty, frankness, openness and courage that sets an example for all of us, not just those in politics or public life. (People who are interested in going into politics should watch the interview for a lesson in how to behave--a lesson generally not learned or ignored.)

After watching and listening to the Edwardses, I have more a great deal more respect for them than I did before, and wish them well in everything they do.
