Now This is Cynical

By using his wife's cancer as a fund raising tool, John Edwards is making Hillary Clinton look like a class act.

Of course, Democrats can even turn funerals into political events.

When you visit the John Edwards for President Web site, you're invited to send a sympathy note to the Edwardses. And tens of thousands of well wishers have done so since that heart-wrenching news conference two weeks ago at which Elizabeth Edwards courageously discussed her incurable cancer.

What those well wishers get in return -- e-mail messages soliciting contributions to Edwards's campaign.
