Apparently Senator John edwards has called a news conference for an important announcment. At the end of the 2004 VP run his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and he has always maintained that he would not run for the Whiote House again until she had a clean bill of health.
The Edwards campaign team has announced that his wife is having a follow-up appointment to a rountine test she had on Monday. Apparently the campaign advisors are not playing down the seriousness of the announcement expect today.
Are we about to see the first big name pull out of the race even before the primary begins?
Update: Looks as if he has announced that his wife's cancer has returned by the "campaign goes on"
