Edwards out?

The blogosphere is abuzz with speculations about John and Elizabeth Edwards' press conference today. Some seem to think that Elizabeth might be sick again, and John is going to duck out. Needless to say, this would be sad on many fronts. I don't know much about Elizabeth Edwards, but she seems like a very fine person--and she's had a tough 10 years (Edwards' account of his son's death in "Four Trials" is enough to break anyone's heart!). Also, I really like John Edwards, and I thought that--thus far--he brought some refreshing old fashioned progressive ideas to the democratic primary. It would be a shame to lose him, and one wonders how it would change the dynamics of the race...but this is all speculation. Let's hope Elizabeth is okay.

I don't know what to make of the announcement. It sounds like she is slowly dying of cancer, but they are trying to play it down. So sad.
