Hillary went on Tyra, too. And, Oprah has specifically said she's endorsing Obama. So, I wonder if she will host other candidates? She has a right to care about who becomes President. I had no idea the Edwards' lost a son and now his wife is battling cancer. How sad for them. He seemed very real and honest in this clip.

I can't beleive that he had to degrade himself to the level of the Tyra show. Tyra is a terrible, self-indulgent interviewer. What's next? McCain is going to be on the HSN talking about his time as a POW?

you know there are a lot of presidential hopefuls who have lost a child. seems like an unusually high percentage. and al gore almost lost his son in a freak accident too. maybe it's just that talking about these things makes the candidates more human and so they are more likely to talk about it. sad. harry truman said "once you lose a child nothing is ever really the same".

it sucks that he has to be on tyrant's show which is usually for stuff like fashion (not that i don;t like fashion) and trannies... does oprah not let anyone except her chosen candidate on?

Very sad. I can't imagine losing my son. I don't know how I'd ever begin to deal with it. On a different note, if Edwards was that real and honest when speaking of his ideas for this country, I would probably like him more. This is the first I've heard him say anything without sounding like a total phony.
