Oprah Interviews Elizabeth Edwards
Oprah: Is the first thing you wanted to know is, "Do you love her?"
Elizabeth: I'm sure that I asked that, but it seemed impossible to me, and I think, impossible to him. This is a person very, very different from me and really very different from him.
To this day, Elizabeth says she and John don't really know why he cheated. "He really has tried, I think, to figure it out, and to talk to people and try to work that out, but I don't think he really knows," she says. "I mean, it was opportunity and didn't seem like there were any consequences."
