Edwards (voiceover): I’m John Edwards, and I approve this message.

[Music] Edwards: Here’s the choice:

Keep going the way we are, pretend the system works while corporate greed rules, insurance lobbyists kill health care, energy giant make billions from insane gas prices, and the middle class is squeezed to the breaking point.

Or tell the truth – the status quo and good intentions aren’t enough.  

We’re not going to look our kids in the eye and say corporate greed stole your future.

We’re going to say America rose up, saved the middle class, gave you a better life, and it started right here in Iowa. 


Notes: Very strong populist rhetoric.
