Looking Ahead

John Edwards has finally announced his candidacy for president and I couldn't be more thrilled. I love this man because he talks about the issues dear to my heart and, in my opinion, of crucial importance for this country. He earns my vote with his strong support for universal health care and his commitment to ending poverty. And unlike some of my past favorites (Kucinich, Nader, Dean) I think he actually has a chance of winning in middle America. If the Clinton faction of the Democrats don't ruin him, anyway. If you don't know much about John Edwards, I encourage you to visit his website , take a look around, and see if he's someone you can support.

Here's a brief overview:

This campaign is about each of us taking responsibility for our country's future -- and ensuring America's greatness in the 21st century.

It is a campaign not just about what we can do in the White House -- but what we can do on the way.

We all must take responsibility and take action now to:

  • Provide moral leadership in the world
  • Strengthen our middle class and end poverty
  • Guarantee universal health care for every American
  • Lead the fight against global warming
  • Get America and other countries off our addiction to oil

If we want to live in a moral and just America tomorrow, we cannot wait until the next President is elected to begin to take action.

Tomorrow begins today. Join us.

Plus, my Republican mother-in-law even thinks he's cute. :-)

I'll have to take closer look at Edwards (well, his philosophy). What you mention are things that I am strongly for, too.
