Kerry Chooses Running Mate

John Kerry is welcoming a former rival to his Democratic Presidential Campaign.

CBS has learned that has learned Kerry has picked North Carolina Sen. John Edwards to be his vice-presidential running mate.

Edwards won only one primary during his run for the presidential nomination, but appealed to thousands of democratic voters with the positive tone of his campaign.

Edwards also raised a lot of money, receiving millions of dollars from fellow trial lawyers before asking them to donate to Kerry.

The one-term senator's experience may be a drawback in an election cycle dominated by war and terrorism.
