Elizabeth Edwards' cancer returns - send your message of support
Elizabeth Edwards is a trooper. She finds out her cancer has moved to her bones, and the very next day she's encouraging her husband to keep running for President. I like these people. I'm glad they're gonna keep going. It's really nice to have someone in the "top tier" who really has taken strong public stands on issues that matter to millions of people: real healthcare reform, living wages, public financing of elections, among others.
Now we just have to "hold them in the light" (as the Quakers say) long enough to get him elected. If we can do that, we can do anything. For the most part I agree with Thom Hartmann that it doesn't really matter who gets elected as long as the people are energized, but this is one candidate I can really support.
Of course, my first love will always be Ralph Nader, with Dennis Kucinich a close second. But unless something really strange happens between now and primary season, my money's on Edwards.
If you have a minute, swing by the Edwards campaign and drop Elizabeth a line. She'd love to hear from you. And while you're there, why not consider making a small donation? Every little bit helps!
