Edwards Presser

Watch live here. Open thread.

UPDATE: The news is that Elizabeth Edwards' cancer has returned; it is considered treatable, though uncurable; it will now be managed like any chronic disease (e.g. diabetes); the campaign continues. More details in comments.

UPDATE 2: And Sully makes me cry: "[I]f anyone did not know of Elizabeth Edwards' extraordinary character before, they do now. What I saw in this press conference was the reality of family values - not the rhetoric, not the divisiveness, not the politics, just the reality of an actual family dealing with real issues. We all face such issues. ... With HIV, I learned to repeat to myself a triad that was essential to surviving any serious medical condition: Own it, face it, beat it. That's what the Edwardses did today, and they will help a lot of people through their example. ... Elizabeth Edwards is a truly remarkable human being. And her marriage is an inspiration."

Thanks to Waveflux for passing the link along in comments.

UPDATE 3: Petulant is a total champion, and has already gotten Part One of the presser ready for those who missed it. Part Two coming soon.

UPDATE 4: And here's Part Two.
