What do you expect from a consumate politician, a divorce?It looks to me like the Edwards campaign is declining to confirm prior to the official statement.

Sometimes when people are sick, it does them more good for everyone around them to go on normally. When I was young, my mom got sick (she's fine now) but she was adamant that all of us go on with our lives. As one of my favorite teachers put it at the time, "she has enough on her mind right now that she doesn't need the guilt" of keeping her family from doing what they need to. I figure that's why she wouldn't want him to give up the opportunity should it be given to him.I've never been married but knowing that my wife had at most 5 years to live I certainly would want to spend as much time as possible with her. Unlike most people, they have the means to travel the world for the rest of her life just enjoying each other, that is what I would be doing, not running for the Presidency. Like he could possibly make any difference if he could even get elected.
