As the Democratic stars are shining over Denver, Elizabeth Edwards barely glimmers in seclusion in North Carolina, reports the AP. Cancer-stricken Edwards was expected to lead the convention charge toward health care reform, but sympathy is running short for her by Dems who believe that her failure to lift the lid on the couple's explosive secret could have seriously damaged the party.
"I think she's complicit," said a Democratic consultant. "Obviously, she knew. While she's the victim, she clearly didn't stand in the way of the cover-up." A Daily Kos poster commented: "She knew she should not have participated in him running for president with this bomb waiting to go off. She loses my sympathy,"
