Today is Democratic Presidential Candidate John Edwards' "House Party Day." The former North Carolina senator's campaign urged its supporters to plan gatherings around the country to "grow our support and bring new resources into the campaign at this crucial time," according to his website.

The Edwards camp also released a "Meet John Edwards" video for the house parties, included below. The video discusses Edwards' background and highlights many of his public speeches. At the beginning of the video, Edwards addresses the house party gatherers.

"I hope to see each of you personally in the days to come and talk about all the ways we can work together to reclaim our government, make our country live up to its ideals and reach its incredible potential," Edwards says.
