Praising Selection of John Edwards as Running Mate

PRAISING SELECTION OF JOHN EDWARDS AS RUNNING MATE -- (House of Representatives - July 08, 2004)

(Mr. PALLONE asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)

Mr. PALLONE. Mr. Speaker, I want to praise John Kerry's selection of Senator JOHN EDWARDS as his running mate.

For more than 2 decades, Senator Edwards has been fighting on behalf of the little guy against America's large corporate interests. JOHN KERRY picked the perfect running mate to complete a ticket that brings hope to middle-class Americans that their needs will no longer be ignored at the White House.

Senator Edwards talks movingly and effectively about two Americas. Over the past 3 years, the bridge between them has grown dramatically, thanks to failed policies pushed by the Bush administration that benefit only the privileged few. I am confident the Kerry/Edwards ticket will energize Americans to demand a change of course and support a new
vision for America.
