Kerry-Edwards 2004, Inc.


60-second radio ad announced Sept. 20, 2004.

Notes and Observations:  Translation...

Woman: To send my son to sacrifice his life in Iraq, the President must look me in the eyes and tell me that he did everything he could to resolve the crisis before going to war.  Bush has admitted his miscalculation over Iraq.  Now, there are more than a thousand soldiers who have died in Iraq.

Woman: I want a leader who understands what war is, who knows how serious it is to send a son or daughter off to risk their life.  I know that John Kerry is that leader.  He was a soldier in Vietnam and saw the destruction caused by war.  He would never send our children off to war without having done everything possible to prevent it.

Woman: Our community deserves John Kerry as president.  He’ll return our country’s pride and never put our children's lives at risk over a ‘miscalculation.’

Woman: Vote for John Kerry for a better future.

John Kerry: “I’m John Kerry, I am running for President, and I approved this message.”
