Have 34 minutes to watch this video?

I have not been this impressed with a presidential candidate in decades; or since I was old enough to care. I suppose I was too young to appreciate Bobby Kennedy, but no one speaks like John Edwards. And as much as I like Obama, he's never given a speech like this one. Check it out:

UPDATE: At the SEIU Convention in Washington DC, members took a straw poll and chose John Edwards as their candidate. This is not a formal endorsement; the Executive Board of the International will make a decision next week about who the endorsed candidate will be. But an endorsement by SEIU will be a huge boost for the Edwards campaign.

That was a great speech. The best union president of all time... I hope he means that.

I think Andy Stern has done a pretty good job with the SEIU. I hope that they can re-vitalize the labor movement in the US. If Edwards can help them do that, it would be great.

I agree, SEIU is doing some great work for the hardest working, poorest paid, labor group out there. I'm really hoping (and expecting) them to endorse John Edwards this week. It'd sure help!
