Possibly for the fifth-consecutive day, the attention in the presidential race won't be on Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John McCain, or Rudy Giuliani -- but instead on John Edwards and his wife. The focus on the couple began on Thursday, when they announced that Elizabeth's cancer had returned but that the campaign would go on. It carried over to the weekend, ending with their joint appearance on 60 Minutes. And today, Elizabeth -- in front of more TV cameras and reporters than would have appeared a week ago -- addresses the City Club of Cleveland, while her husband holds a roundtable discussion on global warming with reporters in San Francisco.

People might not be sure what they're thinking about John Edwards and his decision to stay in the race. But one thing is for sure: They're thinking about him.
