for President, Inc.
Axelrod & Associates
in background] John Edwards: I'm John Edwards. I'm
running for president.
I grew up in a small town. My dad worked in a mill. I played high school, went to this church, and met Elizabeth thirty years ago in law school.
Everything I've done comes from the values I learned in that small town.
Now I want to restore the promise of America, a better life for all who work for it.
I approved this message because I'll never forget where I came from, who I'm fighting for or what Americans can accomplish if they're just given a chance.
