1000 Rally in Portsmouth Tops Off John Edwards' NH Bus Tour 2007

The Edwards family wound up their four-day bus tour of New Hampshire last night by rallying an energized, excited crowd of over 1000 at Prescott Park in Portsmouth. Edwards took questions ranging from health care to Iraq to restoring America’s moral responsibility in the world while his children Emma Claire and Jack darted on and off the stage.

Among the crowd was Nancy Schuster, a breast cancer survivor and single mother of four who has struggled to afford her treatment while putting her children through college. As she told the crowd her story and thanked Elizabeth for an inspirational hospital room phone call earlier this year, Elizabeth walked into the crowd to hug her. Watch this moving moment and see John Edwards tell Nancy that he is running for President because of her and that when he is President, her voice and the millions of voices like hers will be heard:
