One thing is clear… whichever candidate does get the nomination, his or her chance of victory will rest largely on the ideas Mr. Edwards brought to the campaign.
There’s much discussion going on about who the Edwards people are going to vote for now. As an Edwards supporter, I’d like to comment:
First, I urge everyone to unite behind the Democratic nominee in November, no matter who he or she may be.
But in the primary on February 5th, I urge you to vote your conscience: if you believe in Edwards, be true to that. Join voters across the country and vote for him as a way to honor the work he and his wife Elizabeth so unselfishly began.
If we want to uphold grassroots democracy, it’s important to show the money, the media, the party, and especially the candidates, where we stand and what we expect from them as we go forward:
the ideas, ideals and passion John and Elizabeth Edwards brought to a failing system and a failing party.
This is our chance and this the way we can do it. So if you believe in John Edwards and what he stands for, please give him your vote on Tuesday.
