HILLSBOROUGH, NC (AP) -- The will Elizabeth Edwards signed days before her death last month makes no mention of her estranged husband and two-time presidential candidate John Edwards.

The document Elizabeth Edwards signed Dec. 1, six days before her death, also names her eldest child, lawyer Cate Edwards, as the executor of her estate.

In the will, filed in Orange County Superior Court in North Carolina, Edwards leaves all of her personal effects, automobiles and other property to her children - Cate, 12-year-old Emma Claire and 10-year-old Jack.

John and Elizabeth Edwards separated early last year after 32 years of marriage. John Edwards admitted he fathered a child during an affair with a former campaign worker.

I just heard that he is going to be marrying (the tramp) in the summer and he bought a beach area house for over 3 million.. I just pray it's NOT in the Wilmington area... IE Figure Eight, Wrightsville or even Bald Head Island. I hope I never run into either one of them... They both make me sick... If he wasn't getting along with his wife he should have just ended the marriage.. Did he really think having an affair was better for his career.. Oops.. what career..

I don't have my EX in mine either.

He was not her EX husband. They were separated. However, I am pleased to see that with all he put her through she is still showing what a classy lady she was. John Edwards is not a nice person. I pray his young children will end up with good morales.

I don't know their situation or their relationship. However, when a man or woman cheats with someone else, there is usually a reason. Many times that reason is that they are not happy at home.

It's called divorce. If you are unhappy file for divorce. Being unhappy is not a valid excuse for cheating. End of story.

Happened to run across John Edwards a couple years ago. Without going into detail, I'll just say that he's not that great of a guy. Its a good thing that he didn't make it into higher office. I'm glad he got left out of the will. But it's not like this story or my comment matters to anybody anyways. Just thought I would take this opportunity to vent a little bit.

Wow, I didn't see that coming. Not.
