Very Sad If True
I am hearing rumors everywhere that John Edwards is dropping out of the race. Even worse I am hearing it has to do with his wife's health (you may remember she has had to fight off cancer in the recent past).
There is a press conference scheduled for today. Elizabeth Edwards truly seems to be a wonderful person, so I obviously pray that my information is wrong.
As for her husband's getting out of the race, he was quickly becoming solidified as my top choice, with his strong positions on universal healthcare and Iraq, and his not taking a moment to "think about" his answer as to whether homosexuality is "immoral." (which is symbolic of how he has answered tough questions throughout this race, with "others" triangulating at every turn).
This will have political ramifications, for the Democratic field, and me personally, as I was finally settling in as an Edwards guy (though not 100% there yet). But we can discuss that later.
For now, let's wait and see what Edwards has to say today and wish him and his family the best, no matter what his press conference is about.
