I just watched Morning Joe just now and Joe was interviewing Elizabeth Edwards.  He asked her point blank that there was a NY magazine article that talked about why John Edwards hasn't endorsed Barack Obama.  In that article it said that one of the reasons was that Obama got in an argument with Elizabeth Edwards over health care and was "condescending".

Well she just said that that article is false and that Obama was really charming in discussing a variety of things including health care. She said that people should just be careful what you read for many things aren't true.

It is great to hear it from Elizabeth Edwards own mouth that that article is false.  Again people should take what they read with a grain of salt for people just make shit up especially when it is from an unnamed source who isn't part of the campaign but "knows" the Edwards well.

Elizabeth Edwards also said that both she and John most likely will not be endorsing any candidate at this time and instead will just vote privately in the North Carolina primary and most likely will not publicize their votes.  She said that all that talk (particularly from Time magazine, Andrea Mitchell, etc) about them endorsing a candidate is not true either.

I thought her interview was telling in that she attacked John McCain and not either Hillary or Obama.  She said that both of them would make great presidents.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
