Edwards Ad Touts Him As a Tough Guy
Elizabeth Edwards tells voters her husband, Democratic presidential hopeful John 'Silk Pony' Edwards, is a tough guy "who can stare the worst in the face and not blink" in an ad set to start airing Wednesday in New Hampshire.
Elizabeth Edwards, who makes frequent campaign stops in early voting states for her husband, appears in the ad that the campaign hopes will highlight the couple's marriage.
"I have been blessed for the last 30 years to be married to the most optimistic person that I have ever met," she says as photographs from the campaign fade in and out. "But at the same time he has an unbelievable toughness, particularly about other people, and that is his ability to fight for them."
John Edwards, the former North Carolina senator and 2004 vice presidential nominee, was wrapping up an anti-poverty tour through eight states on Wednesday.
"You're not going to outsmart him. He works harder than any human being that I know, always has," Elizabeth Edwards says. "It's unbelievably important that, in our president, we have someone who can stare the worst in the face and not blink."
