I hate to guess at these things.
He sure picked the wrong morning to do his errrands.
I don't think "he doesn't get it", I think they probably made the decision together.
Best of wishes to the Edwards family.
Well in that case I consider him an even bigger A$$ than before. Very sad to use this to gain publicity.
i know someone who is undergoing treatment now for breast cancer spreading to the bone. although it is not good, the doctors told her she could live 10 years. she has gone 3 already, although she gets treatment every single week. all we can do is pray.
He needs to be a husband & dad now - not the prez....
Like minds. To Edwards the American electorate is just another jury.
The title of this thread needs to be changed...He isn't suspending his campaign.
my sisterinlaw had breast cancer that metastized to the bone and she lasted less than a year from that development. they definitely have my prayers.
I applaud Sen. Edwards for putting his wife and children FIRST!
Not really .. it sounds like she is the one that wants the campaign to continue
"I was under the impression that cancer spreading to the bone was not good news."
My understanding as well. I've heard it is also very painful.
Very sad. Prayers and may God grant them strength.
how is he putting them first?
God bless her heart. It doesn't sound good.
One political note: Hillary and Obama will start being a lot nicer to Edwards in hopes of a future endorsement. No more attacks on Edwards policies.
I suspect his wife told him to continue the campaign.
h Lord, he's doing the 'sympathy vote' routine. He'll be channeling any moment now.
He just got 3 million dollars worth of free campaign advertising
"He" needs to do whatever is best for his family. And if this is what he and his wife has decided is best, then so be it. I won't judge them for their personal decisions.
That is my suspicion. By their description, she fractured a rib on the right, and the mets was found on the left side. The fracture occurred by movement. Not a good sign.
I hope she gets great treatment and that it works well for her.
Yes. She will campaign with him as long as possible.
