Gay Marriage Splits Edwards Household
"I don't know why somebody else's marriage has anything to do with me. I'm completely comfortable with gay marriage. If he's pleasant to me on the street, if his children don't throw things in my yard, then I'm happy. It seems to me we're making issues of things that honestly don't matter." - Elizabeth Edwards, wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, speaking to reporters after her keynote speech to San Francisco's Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club. Her husband responded by saying that he loves the way his wife always speaks her mind, but that he continues to only support civil unions for gay couples.
