It was a good event. Tim Russert was an excellent moderator. Love Guiliani - he's a New Yorker! I don't like Edwards - while some points were accurate, he comes across very cocky.

Description

*

John Edwards* was born in Seneca, South Carolina and raised in Robbins, North Carolina, a small town where he developed his strong belief that all Americans deserve an equal opportunity to succeed and be heard.

Senator Edwards brought a positive message of change to the 2004 presidential primaries where he spoke about the two Americas that exist in our country today. After the primaries, Senator John Kerry picked Senator Edwards to serve as his running mate in the 2004 general election.

During the 2008 campaign for the Democratic nomination for President, Senator Edwards ran an energetic and visionary campaign, which was committed to the issues that make a difference in the lives of all Americans.

In 1993, *Rudy Giuliani *was elected Mayor of the City of New York. Campaigning on the slogan “One City, One Standard,” he focused on reducing crime, reforming welfare, and improving the quality of life.

Mayor Giuliani was widely lauded for his steady hand during these challenging times as mayor. He was named Person of the Year by Time magazine, knighted by the Queen of England, dubbed “Rudy the Rock” by French President Jacques Chirac, and former first lady Nancy Reagan presented him with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Freedom Award.
