Benny's World Salutes Elizabeth Edwards

Happy B-day, Elizabeth Edwards. You have inspired many of us with your determination to get health care coverage for all of us and still have time for your family. You have been a vocal advocate for media reform, something needed so much in our country. The Fourth Estate is in a mess, just as our country is. Yet, unfailingly you remain optimistic.

NCDem Amy got this right with this v-card for EE (done two years ago):

She is the "everywoman".

Hope your birthday is relaxing on your day, Elizabeth--at the summer place or wherever you and John, Emma Claire, and Jack are. On behalf of BW readers, we wish you the best!

  • Thank you. What I want for my birthday is Benny's perseverance!

    Best to you and the family. Hugs!

  • Hah!

    Elizabeth, I think that I can speak for Benny as well in saying that your own perseverance on so many levels inspires us to do the same.

    You have an open invitation to a cup of coffee and a scone at La Dolce Via if you're ever in St. Louis.

    That goes for both of you.

  • I hope you had a wonderful Birthday, Elizabeth!

    We sure miss the campaign but are so grateful that you are still out there fighting for healthcare for all.

    Much Love,

  • Dearest Elizabeth,

    How good of Benny to post Birthday Wishes in a place you would be sure to find it!

    I hope you spent the day sunning, funning and jetskiing to your heart's content. If you have a chance perhaps you could post a picture here of you guys with your new toys. To say we miss you and our blog is a given.

    God's blessings to you and the family in the coming year.

  • Knowing that there were quite a few Edwards fans at our local Democratic Party, at the last meeting we passed out funny Oklahoma post cards to those who wanted to wish John & Elizabeth a happy birthday. Sorry, I [OklahomaVoter] forgot to bring the mailing address this time, so fewer cards may reach Elizabeth, though just as many took post cards for Elizabeth as for John.

  • Dear Elizabeth,

    My computer savvy is zilch. I tried several times to post on Benny's blog to wish you Happy Birthday, but to no avail. Had to get another PW.. lol!

    I hope your day brings many blessings and I want you to know that you and your family have inspired us in so many ways. I think of you and JRE often wishing what might have been.

    You and JRE are loved by many, we miss you, miss the blog, miss the campaign craziness, the staffers, but most of all we miss you!

    Happy Birthday dear lady and many, many more!

  • Hello Elizabeth,

    I hope I am not too late to wish you the very best year ahead. IN every way, you have earned the title of our Nation's First Lady. Happy Fourth of July, too, to you and Senator Edwrds and all your family.

    Thank you, both, for your inspiration.
