The Democratic Contenders
By choosing North Carolina Senator John Edwards as his vice-presidential candidate, John Kerry has shown he has the sharp judgment needed to be our President [July 19]. Kerry's military experience combined with Edwards' background as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee and of the joint House and Senate committee investigating 9/11 is just the right mix we need to protect our land, our people and our future. Kerry has some wonderful plans to improve this nation, and Edwards has the speaking ability to get those ideas across.
