John Edwards on the Road and Benson

This is the inspiration (and by Jack Edwards) behind Benny's World and why I try to keep it positive on this blog. This is Benson. He's a lot like the Edwardses.

Speaking of, did you know they are going to NH on a bus tour? And Cate is joining them. Here's a snippet of what she blogged yesterday:
New Hampshire was actually the first place I campaigned by myself for my Dad in 2003. I spoke with a group of high school students before doing an event with the "Students for Edwards" group at Dartmouth College. I still remember how nervous I was that day - it was only through the good graces of my New Hampshire hosts, who were with me, that I got through those first events.

This time around, things are a bit different. Those high school students from 2003 are likely almost college graduates now and they'll all be able to vote in this election. We've had 4 more years of a disastrous Republican administration and the country is ready for change. I think that is why there is already so much excitement around our campaign. Things are already in full-swing in New Hampshire and I'm excited to feel that energy and to meet with the thousands of people who have already come out in support of my Dad, and hopefully, convince a few more of you to join us.

We've certainly got a full schedule. We'll make 15 stops over 4 days. The Fighting for One America bus tour will take us all across the state to talk with voters about some of the most important issues facing our country like how we can work together to achieve energy independence and halt global warming, our need for true universal health care, the importance of rewarding work and strengthening the middle class, and of course, ending the war in Iraq and bringing our troops home.

Sounds great, wish I could be there, but I'll post more once I get more pics.

Update: Check out Chuckles' Mash-up diary at the Daily Kos, which has the tour mapped and pics will be included as added. Diary also includes addies in Facebook for those who wish to gather and discuss their meet-ups with JRE.

More buzz l8tr...
