Edwards Family Presses On With Presidential Campaign

John Edwards NC Senator

Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards is forging ahead with his campaign with an appearance in San Francisco today. He's scheduled to discuss his global warming policy.

The appearance comes days after he and his wife announced that her cancer had returned. Yesterday, in an interview with C-B-S's "60 Minutes," Elizabeth Edwards said that the doctors detected a "hot spot" in her right hip in addition to cancer found in one of her ribs.

Elizabeth Edwards makes an appearance today in Cleveland. There, she'll talk about her struggle with cancer.

One of John Edwards' Democratic rivals is sidestepping questions about whether the couple might be able to cope with both a family medical crisis and the demands of the White House if Edwards is elected.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, at an Iowa town hall meeting this morning, said the Edwardses should decide "the best way for their family to handle this crisis." She calls Elizabeth Edwards "an incredibly strong woman."
