CNN.com - Bill and Hilliary Clinton address Democratic Convention

CNN.com: "Clinton highlights choices
Former President Bill Clinton addresses the Democratic Convention highlighting what he says are the differences between Democrats and Republicans. Clinton told convention delegates they wanted an America that was 'safer, smarter, stronger' while Republicans wanted an America 'run by the right people -- their people.' The convention in Boston will later this week nominate Sen. John Kerry to be the party's official presidential candidate."

"They need a divided America, but we don't," Clinton said. "We Democrats want to build a world and an America of shared responsibilities and shared opportunities ... On the other hand, Republicans in Washington believe that America should be run by the right people, their people."
He said the Bush administration gave tax cuts to the wealthy while raising out-of-pocket health care costs for veterans and underfunding education.
Clinton also praised Sen. John Kerry for always being ready to serve the United States.
Clinton said when the United States went to war, when it needed to recover from the effects of war, when America needed to learn technology, Kerry always said, "send me."
Clinton urged voters to send Kerry to the White House.
