John Kerry and John Edwards eagle.
Gift of Lou and Barbara Grumet
In 2004, Senator John Kerry ran against the incumbent President George W. Bush and lost. His running mate was Senator John Edwards of North Carolina. He produced their names as a paper addition to a common eagle cane and gave them to supporters. Surprisingly, there was no Bush cane, even though President Bush collects canes.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
