"John Edwards is running for president because he wants to build an America that lives up to its promise -- one where we all share in prosperity at home and one that shows real moral leadership around the world.
The next president faces tremendous challenges -- from poverty and lack of health care, to energy and global warming, to fixing the mess in Iraq.
We cannot wait until the next president is elected to begin to address these challenges. If we want to live in a moral and just America tomorrow, we must act today.
We're going to reach out to millions of people to let them know it's still okay to dream big dreams, and do everything we can to make them real -- because that's what America is all about. If you're ready to change our country, please join us."
Regular readers know I’m a strong Democrat, and while I know it’s a little early to be thinking ahead to the next presidential election, I am ready to get started. My guy, John Edwards, made it official recently. What he says he’s about really hasn’t changed from the day his message captured my attention during the last presidential election when Edwards was saddled with poor old John Kerry as a campaign partner.
You see, I’m one of those Democrats who happens to think our party has gotten side-tracked, and I think John Edwards is just the person to help steer America in the right direction again. America has always, in my heart, been full of promise, but as John says, America has a ways to go to live up to that promise. I’ll be writing more, but if we want to see change happen we can’t sit idly by and hope someone else will do it.
