John Edwards firing at Clinton and Obama

Former North Carolina Senator John Edwards has been shown to trail behind his fellow Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama by almost every poll in every state. According to a new poll by NewsMax/Zogby, Edwards is even losing Iowa to Hillary Clinton by 7%. And with so many states moving their primaries further up the calendar, Edwards was forced to react.

Hanover, N.H. was the place where John Edwards kicked off his national bus tour campaign with a speech aimed at painting him as the real change to Washington. "We cannot replace a group of corporate Republicans with a group of corporate Democrats, just swapping the Washington insiders of one party for the Washington insiders of the other," John Edwards cast the first stone, clearly targeting fellow Democrat and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Edwards has been making similar arguments for a while now, seizing every opportunity to attack Hillary Clinton on her unwillingness to stop accepting campaign contributions from lobbyists.
