Here is a video that was posted yesterday:Sen. Edwards made his announcement from New Orleans, a city which was hit very hard by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Edwards is looking more and more like he will be running a populist-based campaign.
As Edwards campaign theme says: TOMORROW BEGINS TODAY
The following was posted on the main front page of his campaign site:
This campaign is about each of us taking responsibility for our country's future -- and ensuring America’s greatness in the 21st century.I agree wholeheartedly and those are issues that I can get behind in the next election.
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.
I do believe that John Edwards can be and will be elected the next president. I'll do whatever I can to help his candidacy but my current priorities are on the 2007 elections in Kentucky and graduating from college.
I've had the chance to meet the Senator in the past (No picture exists of myself with the Senator--I hope that changes sometime) and I think he will make a fine president.
