Dear Editor, I am thrilled with John Kerry's choice of John Edwards as his running mate. Edwards has a history of standing up for ordinary Americans throughout his career. As a trial lawyer he fought for regular people against the insurance industry. In Congress he has fought for health care, protecting civil rights, safeguarding healthy air and water, and protecting our national security. Our country will be well served by John Kerry and John Edwards in the White House. Consider me a proud Kerry-Edwards voter.
