One day after a medical appointment aimed at assessing his wife's recovery from breast cancer, John Edwards will hold a press conference today in North Carolina. Aides have said to expect what the Associated Press calls a "major development" in Edwards' White House run. Based on word from a "close family friend," the New York Times says the announcement Edwards will make today will "affect, at least temporarily, the future of the campaign."
