Letter from Elizabeth Edwards to Barack Obama
by Elizabeth Edwards 11-10-2008
Dear President-elect Obama,
Although it has been said that every great president needs a crisis during which to exhibit his greatness, it is also true, but less said, that the greatness is displayed in the bold strokes that man is willing to embrace in such times: Lincoln and emancipation, Franklin Roosevelt and sweeping social programs. The crises are here. Do not fail your destiny. Treat health care as a moral issue, not a political one. Consider those in poverty and those in fear of poverty as a test of our national character. Save God's planet while there is still time. This is your moment.

She's right. I hope he will get started on SCHIP asap.
