Former Senator John Edwards for the Democratic nomination for President.
I was an early Edwards supporter in 2004 and switched to his running mate largely because of his superior experience. However — despite my misgivings about making too much mention of Hurricane Katrina — as a Gulf Coast native, I deeply appreciate the attention that he has called to it, especially in light of the State of the Union address that made NO mention whatsoever of the problems.
Edwards intends to address the horrible class war that is dividing America. He opposes the outsourcing of American jobs to foreign countries for the sake of lower wages and lower (or no) standards.
He is a voice against the Iraq War and plans to bring the troops home.
This endorsement is not a “well I have to go with SOMEONE.” Edwards has been my second choice ever since the 2008 campaign kicked off, and now that the one who was my first is not a candidate, Mr. Edwards has become my first.
I offer him my support and my best wishes.
