Anyway, she would tell me how for photo ops campaign managers would pull Elizabeth out of the bus, disheveled, no makeup, sickly, with no attempt to hide her thinning hair and black toenails, so she could toss around a football with the Senator. Clearly, this was designed to show what a trooper she was and help him get the sympathy vote. All the while, he was cheating on this woman.
Elizabeth was a woman with vast resources, big money and staff. She could have easily been home taking care of herself but she chose the most grueling lifestyle of all to get her lying cheat of a husband elected as president instead of focusing on her own healing. This is infuriating to me because of all the sick women out there who think that was bravery and an example of how a cancer patient should behave. It's really wrong and an example of what someone should absolutely not do.
