    A lot of us supported him.  I did, and I have to say a great deal of it was due to Elizabeth.  When the story blew about John's affair, I couldn't help but think of the pain she was going through--facing her own death as well as the end of her marriage.

    Part of me still hopes that she gave him hell the way Babe Paley was said to have done to her husband, William Paley, a notorious womanizer who insisted she be perfect while humiliating her with his affairs.  When she was diagnosed with lung cancer, she made her last two years on earth a living hell for him, as he discovered remorse and marital affection far too late.

    Hope is a good thing--maybe the best of things--and no good thing ever dies.
