ABC News ticker at the top of their website:
JOHN EDWARDS AND HIS WIFE, ELIZABETH, TO HOLD PRESS CONFERENCE THURSDAY AT NOON ET -- DEVELOPING
Aravosis has the possibilities:
This comes on the heels of Edwards canceling a campaign appearance recently due to his wife's health. More on that here.
What does this mean?
- That everything is okay. Unlikely. You don't announce a press conference with your wife, and not tell the details in advance, if it's good news.
- That Edwards is dropping out of the race and that his wife is seriously ill. Obviously we don't know, and I don't like speculating about someone's health like this. But this seems the most likely possibility at this point.
- That Edwards is taking a break from campaigning to tend to his wife. This is also possible, but geez, that's still not good news for his campaign or for his family of course.
Please let it be the first one...
