Campaign Video of the Day -- November 12, 2007

Veterans' Day is November 11. Today we celebrate the holiday. We are in the middle of shooting wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Yesterday Hillary Clinton posted a video called Veterans Speak out for Hillary effectively stealing a march on her Democratic opponents.

In fairness John Edwards did deliver an important policy speech yesterday. In it he

called upon Americans to honor the sacrifice of the millions of veterans in the generations of Americans that came before us by rising up to meet the great moral test of our generation – ensuring that our children have a better, more prosperous life than we’ve had.
Barack Obama issued this Veterans day statement:
"As we mark Veterans Day, all of America must speak with one voice to America's veterans: we honor your service, we are in awe of your sacrifice, and we will do everything that it takes to be there for you just as you have been there for us. Our veterans are a part of an unbroken line of Americans who have borne the greatest burden for our freedom -- from those who threw off the tyranny of a King to those who fight bravely and brilliantly under our flag today. Keeping faith with those who serve is a cornerstone of American patriotism. Let us rededicate ourselves to honoring those who have served by providing them with the services, support, and respect that they have earned."
Neither has video.
