Letter to the Editor: Debates offer clear choice

Sunday, October 10, 2004

To the editor:

The debate between John Edwards and Dick Cheney presented us with a choice.

John Edwards shared an optimistic vision for the next four years and hope for our children's future. No one wants their children looking towards wars and struggle when we can have peace and prosperity.

Dick Cheney has been running this country's foreign policy for the past four years and has a record of failure and deceit. He refuses to admit his own failures, and expects us to elect him again and send more of our children into harms way. I can't think of a more stubborn, mean spirited approach to our future. Let's retire this career bureaucrat.

The vice presidential debate made it clear that John Kerry and John Edwards are the right choice for our children and grandchildren.

JOHN BOGET, Anna, Ill.
