I don’t think she’ll need to worry about this:
“I expect to live a long time,” Mrs. Edwards said. “I expect us to have lots and lots of years together. I do believe that. But if that’s not the case, I don’t want my legacy to be that I pulled somebody who ought to be president out of the race. It’s not fair to me, in a sense.”
UPDATE: Sorry for the confusion. What I meant to emphasize is that Elizabeth Edwards’ legacy will not be that she pulled someone out of the presidential race — she’ll be remembered for how she lived not how she died.
