If you are confused on whom you should support for president, you aren't the only one.
Doris "Granny D" Haddock is the symbol of the progressive left in New Hampshire. Her well-documented walk across the country for campaign finance reform made her a national name for the issue. Her quixotic campaign for the US Senate was the subject of a recent HBO movie.
So it is no surprise the the 97-year-old grandmother from Dublin, N.H. is a sought after endorsement for Democratic presidential candidates.
Last December she endorsed Mike Gravel. Then she campaigned twice with Dennis Kucinich this year. On Saturday the John Edwards campaign issued a press release announcing that she is endorsing him.
“In my 97 years, I have seen many politicians come and go,” said Granny D in the statement. “Now more than ever, we need a leader who has the courage, the backbone and the integrity to stand up to the corporations and special interests in Washington, to deliver universal health care and energy independence, to fight for the middle class, and to finally bring about public financing of our elections. John Edwards is that man, and I’m proud to support him in this campaign.”
