The Edwards Announcement 

I feel like I have to comment on today's announcement. Many people are expressing surprise that John Edwards is continuing his presidential campaign. As someone who has met both John and Elizabeth during his last campaign, I am not surprised at all.

I can't see them sitting around at home unless Elizabeth's prognosis was horribly bleak. They are people of action, and the best way for Elizabeth to stay healthy is to stay busy, to keep her sense of purpose and mission. In this case, that means continuing the campaign.

As she said, she may have to take more time off for rest and doctor's appointments, but she wants to be out there making a difference when she can, supporting the man and the country she loves.
