In interviews during her husband's heyday during the 1970s and 1980s, Elaine Edwards disclosed her loneliness in being married to a man singularly focused on politics, with time out for hunting or gambling in Las Vegas with his buddies and engaging in the extracurricular activities that earned him the reputation as the charming rogue who couldn't resist the women who flocked to him.
