John Kerry for President, Inc.

"Energy Independence" 
30-second ad run in IA and NH starting Dec. 24, 2003.



[Music throughout; opens with sounds of kids at play] 

John Kerry (voiceover):  For nearly thirty years, we've talked about reducing America's dependence on Mideast oil, and here we are today, more dependent on foreign oil than ever. 

It's time to make energy independence a national priority, and to put in place a plan that frees our nation from the grip of Mideast oil in the next ten years.

Because no child growing up in America today should ever have to go to war for oil. 

Kerry (to camera): I'm John Kerry and I approved this message.

On the screen: Scenes of kids at play in the snow.  Closes with Kerry talking to the camera.
