[Music] Edwards: When Iím president Iím going to say to members of Congress and members of my administration, including my cabinet: Iím glad that you have health care coverage and your family has health care coverage. But if you donít pass universal health care by July of 2009 Ė in six months Ė Iím going to use my power as president to take your health care away from you.  [Applause] Thereís no excuse for politicians in Washington having health care when you donít have health care. 

Edwards Voiceover: Iím John Edwards and I approve this message.


Notes:  This ad started the campaign's second wave of advertising in Iowa.

Observations: The ad is a bit unusual in that it consists of a continuous clip of the candidate talking, without audience reaction shots or stock footage/photos cut in.
