It's official

Kerry Taps Edwards for Running Mate

Edwards is "a champion for middle class Americans, and for those struggling to reach the middle class," Kerry told cheering supporters in Pittsburgh.

"Throughout this campaign, John talked about the great divide in America, the two Americas that exist between those who are doing very well and those who are struggling to make ends meet in our country," Kerry told the crowd.

"That concern is at the center of this campaign. It is what it is all about," Kerry said. "It is what the 35 years of my struggle have been about. And I am so proud that together John Edwards and I are now going to fight to build one America for all Americans."
