What John and Elizabeth Edwards are enduring right now is both painfully common and completely extraordinary. Like too many couples, they have received a grim diagnosis and must now decide how to live the remainder of what will certainly be an abbreviated life together. However, they are also running for the presidency - I say "they" because this is a team effort in the mold of the Clintons' 1992 campaign - and their private tragedy is now a very public matter. What is not so common - and is certainly not commendable - is the intrusive and sometimes cruel public comment on her fate and on their decisions around it. It is enough to make you long for the days when hardly anybody knew FDR used a wheelchair or that JFK lived in debilitating pain.

Here's hoping that news of guilty verdicts in the Jerry Sandusky case took a huge bite out of the audience ABC's  "20/20"  expected for its hour-too-long interview with Rielle Hunter Friday night. I say that because then ABC News will have gained nothing for debasing itself by giving an hour of prime time to this wretched woman so that she could sell more copies of her new book. In fact, I am really hoping ABC News lost some credibility with viewers for sticking with this tabloid con job instead of breaking away at some point to cover the real news that the former Penn State coach was found guilty on 45 of 48 counts in connection with the sexual molestation of minors.

A diagnosis of Stage IV metastatic breast cancer sounds like a death sentence. And, for some, it can be. It is both inoperable and incurable. But cancer experts say the disease is treatable, and its victims' prognoses vary as widely as their individual cancers. Elizabeth Edwards, wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, learned Monday that her breast cancer, first diagnosed and treated in 2004, has turned up in her bones. But chemical, hormonal and biological drug therapies can be used to keep it in check, said Dr. Michael Schultz, director of the breast center at St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson.

E lizabeth Edwards supposedly has threatened to sue, not her lout of a husband, but his former aide for enabling the affair that led to the end of her marriage. She'll have to get in line, though, since the other woman, Rielle Hunter, has already sued the ex-aide, to get back a sex tape she had made with Mr. Wonderful, John Edwards. Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Like some sort of perverse antidote to all the hearts and flowers and candy and kisses of this time of year, the Edwards saga continues, a lawsuit here, another book there.

WASHINGTON -- The presidential candidacy of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has unleashed something new upon the political landscape: the wives. More than any previous presidential campaign, the candidates' spouses - especially on the Democratic side - are stepping forward and speaking out. Outspokenness is suddenly a virtue. Mrs. Clinton is, in fact, running not only against leading candidates Barack Obama and John Edwards but also against their equally powerful and ambitious wives. Ironically, the trend of first lady as co-contender began with Mrs. Clinton when husband Bill introduced a twofer presidency.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- John Edwards stood beside his wife, Elizabeth, yesterday at the site of their wedding reception 30 years ago and said some of the most painful words a human being can utter: "Her cancer is back." With that, the 2008 presidential campaign entered uncharted territory: A leading candidate will continue to live the public life of trying to win the White House while enduring the personal ordeal of watching his wife battle a deadly disease. Yesterday's announcement, at an inn near the university campus where the couple met as law students, provided a glimpse of complex emotions while sparking a national debate over whether the couple should focus their energy on fighting the disease or remain in a grueling, around-the-clock campaign that can exhaust even the healthiest participants.

Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart By Gordon Livingston Subtitled "Thirty True Things You Need to Know," the slim book by Columbia-based psychiatrist Gordon Livingston has been a source of inspiration and comfort to many, including Elizabeth Edwards, who wrote the foreword to the book. Edwards, the wife of former presidential candidate John Edwards, "met" Livingston in an online chatroom for bereaved parents. "He knows," she writes, "as well as anyone could, that life will have its way with us and that all we can hope to do is to keep ourselves in alignment for the bumpy ride."

VINCENT ANANIA, 87 Father-in-law of John Edwards Vincent Anania, the father-in-law of one-time Democratic presidential contender and former Sen. John Edwards, died Saturday in Chapel Hill, N.C., of heart failure, the senator's wife, Elizabeth Edwards, said in a statement. Mr. Anania, a native of Marianna, Pa., was the first in his family to be born in the United States, Mrs. Edwards said. He was raised in Brownsville, Pa., and attended the University of Pittsburgh. He later attended the U.S. Naval Academy, where he played football and was named All-American in lacrosse, she said.

Like many other Americans lately, I've found myself thinking hard about - and personally identifying with - the dilemma faced by Elizabeth Edwards and her husband, John, the former senator running for president. His career, her health. Not an easy balancing act. Who should sacrifice for whom? How much? And when - as soon as bad news hits, or later, if things get really bad? What counts as a sacrifice, anyway? Nobody wants to be - or live with - a martyr. But nobody wants to deal with or watch a loved one deal with cancer unsupported, either.

AMES, Iowa -- In his angry campaign speeches, John Edwards vows to fight as president for millions of ordinary Americans whose futures are threatened by "corporate greed." But it's his own future that is in jeopardy right now. Edwards has his back to the wall in tomorrow night's Iowa caucuses, the first voter test of the 2008 campaign. Unlike Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama, his rivals in a three-way battle for first place, he's pouring almost everything into this state. Without an Iowa victory, Edwards advisers have privately acknowledged, his chances of winning the Democratic nomination could all but disappear.
