Last weekend, I was proud to travel through Iowa with John Edwards during his "Main Street Express" bus tour as he met with caucus goers and discussed his specific ideas for providing universal health care, ending the war in Iraq, stopping global warming, and taking back our government from the powerful corporations and special interests who run it.

 

It was exciting to see the growing energy behind John while I traveled with him over the weekend. Iowans were coming out by the hundreds to meet him, listen to what he had to say, and ask him tough questions about his plans for our country. And I was thrilled to hear that, just yesterday, John received the endorsement of a wonderful Iowa leader -- First Lady Mari Culver. It's clear that John is gaining momentum across the state, but he needs help from all of us now to keep that momentum going.

 

Additionally, the latest polls show John Edwards as being the one Democrat who can defeat all of the Republicans running for president.

 

So please take a minute to watch this powerful movie trailer and then pass it along to your friends and tell them how critical it is that we all step up to help John during these final days:

Thank you for joining me in supporting John Edwards. I am confident that when he is in the White House, he'll be a leader we will all be proud to call our president.

 

Have happy and healthy holidays,

The pundits and the media are all realizing that John Edwards is the Democratic candidate who can win against any of the Republicans next year. The polls are confirming this. Put John up against Mike Huckabee, John McCain, Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney or Fred Thompson -- and he wins, no ifs, ands or buts.

My name is Doug Bishop. I live in Jasper County, Iowa, where I am the county treasurer.

 

In September 2004, I was among the first wave of employees who were laid off at the Maytag plant in Newton, IA. Later that month, my family and I met John Edwards as he was campaigning for the vice-presidency on the Democratic ticket.

 

I will never forget how John took my seven year-old son by the hand, dropped to his knees, looked him square in the face and said, "I'm going to keep fighting for your Daddy's job, I promise you that."

 

Three years later, I'm fortunate to have landed on my feet -- but hundreds of my friends, family and co-workers haven't been so lucky.

 

That's why John Edwards has never gone back on the promise he made to my son. Even though the Maytag plant in Newton is now closed for good and the American dream has been taken away from so many who worked in that plant, he continues to fight for all of us who want to leave our children with a better life.

 

Recently, I had the privilege to introduce John Edwards at a rally in Iowa. Please take a few minutes to watch this video clip. I hope it will give you a better idea of who I am and, most importantly, why I'm supporting John Edwards.

I know, from personal experience, that John Edwards will continue fighting and speaking out for me and my family and millions of other Americans like us, from the day he takes the oath of office as president to the day he leaves the White House.

 

There are just 14 days to the Iowa caucuses. We need to make sure that John wins in Iowa and in the other early states so he can be the Democratic nominee -- and the voice for hardworking Americans everywhere.
