[L]et me thank John Edwards for his generous statement tonight. He brings a compelling voice to our party – great eloquence to the cause of working men and women – and great promise for leadership for the years to come. I believe that in 2004, with one united Democratic Party, we can and will win this election and build one America of freedom and fairness for all.
Let me also congratulate Howard Dean. Today, we are reminded again of the unprecedented contribution he has made to this party and this country by bringing so many into the political process.
My campaign is about replacing doubt with hope, and replacing fear with security.
The Bush Administration has run the most arrogant, inept, reckless, and ideological foreign policy in modern history.
This President wants to run on national security. Well, if George Bush wants to make national security the central issue in 2004, I have three simple words for him I know he understands: Bring it on.
This campaign is about the big issues and great challenges that we face as a nation.
But our opponents can't campaign on jobs or health care or fiscal responsibility. Instead, George Bush, who promised to be a uniter, has become the great divider. Just last week, he proposed to amend the Constitution for political purposes.
He has no right to misuse the most precious document in our history in an effort to divide this nation and distract us from his failures.
We reject the politics of fear and distortion.
And we will keep trust with Lincoln's ideal of America as "the last best hope of earth."
How many hours per week, on average, are you willing to work to help defeat George Bush? We will email you with different ways you can help.
