New Hampshire gets all the good stuff. When John Edwards visited Houston, Texas this summer about 350 of his devotees, me included, stood heel to toe in a room whose air conditioning system could not cool it down. These New Hampshire guys get to go and hear John Edwards give a very inspiring speech, AND listen to Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne sing. I hope they all paid something for that. Last time I heard John speak in person it cost me $15. Last time I heard Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne sing together it was at the Santa Barbara Bowl and it cost me $32.
So I got this email on this New Hampshire town hall meeting from Elizabeth Edwards. “Oh,” I thought to myself, “Not another request for a donation.” I watched the video that came with it and something clicked. I don’t know what it is, but Elizabeth Edwards identifies it as capturing “a feeling of warmth and hope”. It sure worked for me. Here is what Elizabeth Edwards wrote:
The holiday season is a time for family, a time to give thanks -- and a time to think back on the year past.
This past week, John was joined by two of my favorite singers, Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne, at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire. Take a moment to watch this video clip -- it captures the feeling of warmth and hope that we feel every day on the campaign trail. This is one of my favorite songs.
I hope you will take a couple of minutes to watch it, and share it with your family and friends over the holidays.
