From MSNBC's Norah O'Donnell
Elizabeth Edwards is denying a report that she is grooming her oldest daughter, Cate, to take care of her youngest children when she dies.
"There is no truth whatsoever to the story that I am trying to deny John custody of the children after my death," Elizabeth wrote me in an email.
The New York Daily News reported that Elizabeth was trying to deny John Edwards custody of their children, Emma 12, and Jack, 10, to keep them away from Rielle Hunter. Elizabeth called the story "nonsense."
