It appears John Edwards may be suspending his campaign due to the health concerns of his wife…
Democrat presidential hopeful John Edwards focused on the health of his wife, Elizabeth, and his political future on Thursday, his personal and professional life inexorably linked.
The couple planned a news conference in Chapel Hill, N.C., to discuss their plans Thursday—a day after visiting doctors who are monitoring Mrs. Edwards’ recovery from breast cancer.
It’s not a way I’d want to see any candidate, whether I agree or disagree with their policies, go out.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Edwards family.
Edwards has announced that his wife’s cancer is back, but “The campaign goes on. The campaign goes on strongly.”
So why the press conference? Why not just mention to the press pool following you what’s going on? This almost gives the appearance that he’s using the news about his wife’s health to re-energize his slow-moving campaign. It smacks of a focus group-driven, calculated p.r. stunt. I truly hope I’m wrong.
Looks like I was right.
