Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards accompanied his wife, Elizabeth, who has been treated for breast cancer, on a doctor's visit Wednesday. His campaign said they would hold a news conference in their hometown Thursday to discuss her health.I wouldn't wish this on Laura Bush or Lynne Cheney. I have seen this horrible disease happen so many times and lost so many important women in my life, it is the scourge for women in our times.
Update: seems Edwards went with Elizabeth to a follow up appointment. This is bad.
But why would they call a press conference? Could Edwards be dropping out because of a bad diagnosis? Why would they have a presser to announce a clean bill of health? Plus, we don;t know if this was a follow up doctor's visit that he attended with her.
The one time I met Elizabeth Edwards my impression of her was that she was a lovely woman. The kind of gal I could easily hang out with and talk about a number of things. Apparently she was the one who got the hubby to pay attention to the blogosphere.
A lot of good intentions should go out there tonight for her health and the health of all women.
