John and Elizabeth Edwards have a given full, candid, and heartfelt account and explanation of their decision to continue the quest for the presidency despite the cancer threat to Mrs. Edwards. No one can reasonably doubt their sincerity in concluding that this route is best for them and for their belief that it could be best for the nation.

So what more need be asked about this personal decision? Nothing really, but the media seem determined to hype this story with reporters and pundits offering opinions and asking questions in poor taste. The hype is nowhere near the Anna Nicole Smith level, but the interrogation by Katie Curic on 60 Minutes went beyond the bounds of good taste and respect.

The Edwards demonstrated their love of family, each other, and the country. The media need to respect their judgment and refrain from further exploitation.
