Is Elin Nordegren a Hero? Well, as The Daily Beast points out, the Swedish press sure think so, saying:
Swing it again, Elin! — Jan Helin, editor in chief of the Swedish Newspaper Aftonbladet.
Thank God for girls like Elin. Next time, I hope she uses a bigger club. — Aftonbladet reporter Ann Söderlund
Our Swedish hearts are overwhelmed with pride, because our very own Elin didn’t take any sh*t. Just like a tough Swedish girl shouldn't. Elin is our heroine. — Britta Svensson, columnist for the tabloid Expressen.
Swedish women like Elin are brought up to be independent and strong. And you can only stand for just so much humiliation. We're excited about this. We're hoping Elin will file for divorce and show Tiger—and the world—what Swedish women stand for. — Karin Magnusson, the op-ed editor for Aftonbladet.
From her steely calm to her potential half-a-billion divorce settlement, Elin Nordegren certainly has been playing it calm, cool and collected. But is she a hero? Or is she just a victim that is making the most of a bad situation? Why or why not? Vote now!
