Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, spoke to a crowd of more than 100 in Harland Cinema, Thursday, Feb. 19. Her appearance was sponsored by Emory Young Democrats. Prior to taking questions from the floor, Kerry discussed her own background growing up in colonial Africa; how she became reacquainted with Kerry, her second husband, through a shared concern for the environment; and the Massachusetts senator’s vision for America as well as some specific policy initiatives he would back if elected president in November. “What I thought about America was that it was a place of possibility,” said Kerry, chair of The Howard Heinz Endowment and the Heinz Family Philanthropies. “I think that idea of America is what is most at stake.” She said the primary enemy was cynicism and that young voters were an important part of defeating that cynicism—and the “divisive administration” currently in office.
