Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry selected former rival John Edwards to be his running mate, telling supporters he couldn’t wait to see the freshman North Carolina senator going “toe-to-toe with Dick Cheney.”
We’ll find out for certain later today.
[Update: Should have checked my email. I have an email from Kerry to his supporters that he will indeed announce Edwards as his running mate. From that email: ‘In the next 120 days and in the administration that follows, John Edwards and I will be fighting for the America we love. We’ll be fighting to give the middle class a voice by providing good paying jobs and affordable health care. We’ll be fighting to make America energy independent. We’ll be fighting to build a strong military and lead strong alliances, so young Americans are never put in harm’s way because we insisted on going it alone.” Go get ‘em.]
