Mrs. Edwards, in a brief interview from her home in Chapel Hill, said she and Mr. Edwards would discuss her health at the news conference, but she declined to elaborate.
“I’m still here,” she said.
Jennifer Palmieri, communications director for the Edwards campaign, said that she would not provide any details in advance of the press conference, which will be held in Chapel Hill, N.C.
Edwards is such a sleazeball, it is very hard not to be cynical about this. I'm not sure why Elizabeth Edwards' health is anything that requires a national press conference. It is sufficient to note that Edwards is polling a very distant third among Democrats. Edwards and his handlers are likely looking for a point or two of sympathy bump.
