John Edwards Respects Wife’s Opposing Opinion

Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards and his wife Elizabeth stopped by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night.

In addition to poking fun at Edwards’ expensive locks, the power couple conversed on Mrs. Edwards’ San Francisco gay pride appearance, during which she diverted from her hubby’s civil union policy, “I’m completely comfortable with gay marriage…”. Replying to his lovely wife’s lovely comments, former South Carolina Senator Edwards admitted he’s still evolving:

A lot of people I love and care about feel the same way Elizabeth does. I’m very strong about ending discrimination against gay and lesbian couples. But I’m not quite where Elizabeth is yet.

Well, then, perhaps Lizzie should be running for president.

But, seriously, it’s nice to know that a man can admit his political and social weaknesses. Whether he’ll do something about them – well, that remains to be seen…
