Elizabeth Edwards is legendary for her optimism, but given the media frenzy surrounding her husband, her hope that the paternity issues surrounding him and the daughter of his mistress get done "in a quiet way" seems like a fantasy. On Wednesday, Larry King asked Edwards, currently ill with terminal cancer, if she knew whether her husband John would take a paternity test, and she responded with the vague expectation that "at some point, something happens." North Carolina TV station WRAL reported last week that John was expected to claim paternity of the infant daughter of his ex-mistress, Rielle Hunter, and the National Enquirer claimed that Hunter is moving into his neighborhood. Elizabeth is standing by her man, though. Of her home life she said, "Things are going fine. We're getting the children ready for the new school year. Everything is going smoothly at my house."
