Michelle Obama and Mitt Romney raising money, Edwards trial continues, plus more to watch for Tuesday in politics

It's shaping up to be a quiet day in terms of scheduled events.

Michelle Obama will deliver remarks at fundraisers in Nevada and New Mexico, and Mitt Romney will do the same in Philadelphia this evening.

Ron Paul is still out there campaigning. He'll attend a California fundraiser where speakers include "The Black Swan" author Nassim Taleb.

The John Edwards trial continues in Greensboro, N.C., and Cheri Young, wife of Andrew Young, ex-aide to Edwards, is expected to be on the witness stand again. She broke down Monday while recounting how she and her husband hid Edwards' affair with Rielle Hunter during the 2008 presidential campaign.

And then there is this: It has been one year since U.S. Navy SEALS killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden during a raid at his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
