(LAUGHTER)

And I'm...

(APPLAUSE)

And I assure you, you watch, I'll still love yours. So hang in there.

(APPLAUSE)

KERRY: I will always be particularly grateful to the colleague that you just heard from who became my partner, my very close friend, an extraordinary leader, John Edwards.

(APPLAUSE)

And I thank him for everything he did. 

Thank you, sir.

(APPLAUSE)

KERRY: John and I would be the first to tell you that we owe so much to our families. They're here with us today. They were with us every single step of the way. They sustained us.

They went out on their own and they multiplied our campaign all across this country. 

No one did this more with grace and with courage and candor, that I love, than my wife Teresa, and I thank her.

(APPLAUSE)

And our children were there every single step of the way. It was unbelievable. Vanessa, Alex, Chris, Andre and John from my family, and Elizabeth Edwards, who is so remarkable and so strong and so smart.
