Elizabeth Edwards Wouldn't Be 'Sitting in Cabinet Meetings'

E. Edwards: He has no idea. He has no idea. John and I spent seven hours in the hospital room between the time that we saw the bone scan move across my body and saw the spots, and the time we got the CT scan, scan of my soft tissues back.

Rush Limbaugh was not with us.

John's faith and his political dream coincide unbelievably closely. The idea that we respect each human being as a creature of God, that we can't -- that it's for God to judge, and not for us, all of those things are part of his religious thinking and part of his political thinking.

On Her Prognosis

McFadden: Have you asked the doctors what the prognosis is in terms of time?

E. Edwards: You know, the problem is that there are no statistics that actually apply to me. I read a lot about people who know what my prognosis is, but they don't.

McFadden: The statistics do tell us something. It tells us the probabilities, right now in this moment, and what they say is five years out, 20 percent survival rate.

E. Edwards: They don't actually say that. That statistic has to do with people who prevent for the first time with stage four metastasized cancer. That is not me.

And the American Cancer Society has tried to come back and stop people from saying that, because it is not applicable to my situation.

Cynthia McFadden's interview with Elizabeth Edwards and their daughter Cate will air on ABC News "Nightline" Monday, April 2, 2007 at 11:35 p.m. EDT and PDT. The report will also air on "Good Morning America" and "World News."
