The EFM Feature

From this week’s Time Magazine, a little anecdote which demonstrates how classy Ann Romney is:

When it comes to the never-ending debate over Elizabeth and John Edwards’ decision to continue his campaign after her diagnosis with incurable breast cancer, much of the blame has been directed at her. In devoting herself to her husband’s goal, was she ignoring what might be best for her children? Earlier this month, Edwards got into a public spat with a Clinton supporter, who had blogged that she was a “terrible mother.” Elizabeth, a lifelong insomniac who spends her wakeful hours surfing the internet, came across the post and wrote back: “You don’t get to judge me because you think you know exactly what you would do if you had my disease. I want to be really clear: you don’t know.”
But there is at least one person who did know. Ann Romney, who was diagnosed in 1998 with multiple sclerosis, called Elizabeth shortly after the Edwards made their announcement in March. “I totally understand why you’re still fighting,” Romney told her. “I totally get it.”
