Elizabeth Edwards, 61, dies after a six-year battle with cancer. She, of course was the wife of former Senator John Edwards who was Senator John Kerry's running mate in the 2004 Presidential Election. I was honored to meet her during the campaign trail in Ottumwa, Iowa. I interviewed her husband a couple of times in 2003 and 2004. I also got a chance to see her husband a few years later in Springfield, Missouri. Read the CNN story here.
