As John Edwards bowed out of his second run for the presidency, questions swirled about his wife, Elizabeth. Her absence from the campaign trail in recent weeks had even her closest friends wondering about her well-being.
But Elizabeth Edwards just has a bad case of the sniffles, a friend said. "My husband and I went to South Carolina for the primary there," said Sally Plyler, a friend from Raleigh, N.C. "I called her before I went and after I came back. She said she just had a bad cold."
Ellan Maynard, another longtime friend, said Elizabeth Edwards had a recent checkup and said "it was all good."
In March, John and Elizabeth Edwards announced that the cancer they thought she had beaten had moved from her breast to her bones and was incurable.
