Armstrong to Hold Cancer Forums in Iowa

Lance Armstrong is pushing his cancer fight into presidential politics. The cancer survivor, activist and seven-time winner of the Tour de France announced he will hold presidential candidate forums on cancer next month in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

"For me personally, it's just to make sure that whatever candidates we have now, and then ultimately the two who want to be president, discuss the No. 1 killer in this country, just like they would discuss war or terror or taxes," Armstrong said in a video statement on his foundation Web site.

"I think whoever wants to be commander in chief ought to answer the cancer question," Armstrong said.

The forums are scheduled for Aug. 27 for Democrats with the Republicans the next day.

What do you guys think of this? I think this is a really good idea. I want to hear what the candidates have to say about cancer and how they plan on funding programs that fight cancer.
