Now, let me say something else that might be accused of cynicism. What is their religion? I don't doubt they're "religious people," but we talked about how political people are different than you and I -- and, you know, most people when told a family member's been diagnosed with the kind of cancer Elizabeth Edwards has, they turn to God. The Edwards turned to the campaign. Their religion is politics and the quest for the White House. It's not just with them. That's part and parcel of political people.Note the generic "political people," not specific to Edwards, progressives, or Democrats, though he uses that background idea as an explanation for Edwards' behavior.
Elizabeth Edwards quote to Katie Couric:
"This is what we believe in. This is what we're spending our lives doing. It's where our heart and soul is. And we can not stop."Darn close to being a religion, I'd say. I am not prescribing any specific action that I think "real" Christians would do in the face of this news. I have no idea. But the underlying attitude bothers me.
