243. America is fortunate to have people like you!
Speaking as a Canadian, I was very, very proud to see you and John, and John K. and Teresa, looking so confident and hopeful onstage on Wednesday. It made me realize that there is still a LOT that everybody can do -- and that the true spirit of the United States, the decency and compassion which we as your neighbours have seen so much of -- cannot be vanquished. Just as you, yourself, will prevail.

Thank you for helping put everything into perspective, and for sharing your time with us right now, when your own life is so busy. Elections can be tiring and acrimonious, and there must have been times when you logged into DU and either cursed or laughed out loud at some of the stuff people were posting!

Take care, and remember that you have a lot of friends here.

By the way -- your name was the one that stood out for me, months before the convention -- though I have to confess that it's because I went to school with another Elizabeth Edwards quite some time ago!
