330. Bless you, Mrs. Edwards.
We're not ready to give up the fight. It's clear to me, from everything I've seen leading up to the election, that Kerry should have won this election. The exit polls strongly pointed to a Kerry win; so did the huge crowds of hopeful people who attended Kerry/Edwards rallies across the country.

Late in the evening on election night, John Edwards told us that he & Kerry would make sure that every vote counted. We heard it reported on cnn that the Red Sox owner offered his private plane to fly Kerry's lawyers to Ohio to oversee the vote count. We heard nothing more about the lawyers. Instead, Kerry conceded before the votes were counted. Having the campaign workers crunch the numbers to project the outcome is one thing; ensuring that votes weren't manipulated is another. I'm terribly disappointed that Kerry conceded without taking a longer look at any disparities. I'm concerned that in between the time we learned about Kerry's lawyers making plans to travel to Ohio & the next morning when Kerry conceded, that some back-door pressuring was going on between this crooked administration & Kerry. I'm wondering if he was threatened in some way.

I'm not ready to stop fighting. Four years is too long to wait for hope. Too much damage can be done to this country.

Please forgive me for using this opportunity as a soapbox. I wish you & John & your lovely family the very, very best.

And good luck with your health, Mrs. Edwards. My mother had a golf-ball sized lump in her breast in 2000. She is cancer-free & doing wonderfully.

Take care. :)
