John is first to have his bags packed for Chicago and YearlyKos. The decision was easy: the opportunity to talk, to listen, to question and to learn from the people who make online the center of real political dialogue that YearlyKos offers is important. Unparalleled, really. And so John will be there, there with you.
You have heard John say it: the pamphleteers of the 18th century and the town squares and town hall meetings of the 19th century have been replaced by the first truly new democratic interchange in a century: the internet. And you are the ones who power that interchange -- by challenging the candidates, by dissecting the issues, by supporting the candidates who meet your demanding standards. It may frighten some candidates. It doesn't frighten John; it energizes him. You energize him. So, he is headed to Chicago to get some of that energy.
The campaign has set up a special page for those who want to stand with John at YearlyKos and share some of their energy with him. Go to http://www.johnedwards.com/...
Before I put the children to bed (end of year tests for Emma Claire tomorrow), I will be online for a few minutes if you have any questions.
