"America needs John Edwards and his leadership. I have known John Edwards for many years, and I know first-hand of his commitment to healing the divisions in our nation. I know that he cares deeply about ending poverty and giving working people a fair deal. I know that he is dedicated to making health care accessible to everyone.
