Person of the Day: Elizabeth Edwards


ELIZABETH EDWARDS, who, in a remarkable political moment, announced that her cancer, now, tragically, inoperable, has returned…and that her husband’s, John Edwards, presidential campaign would go on with her full support. Look for John Edwards to surge (if you can find him).

WE DON'T KNOW

What's going to happen next as the headlines grow crazier and more disconcerting by the day. But we do know the job of an independent, unrelenting press is more important than ever—and the ongoing commitment of MoJo readers to fight for a democracy where facts matter and all can participate is absolutely vital.

If you feel the urgency deep in your bones like we do, please consider signing up as a monthly donor during our fall pledge drive to support Mother Jones' fair and fearless reporting for the long haul (or make a one-time gift if that works better for you). The headlines may fade, but the need to investigate the powerful never will.
