LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – Democrat John Edwards would like to focus his presidential campaign on change in Washington but Hillary Clinton keeps getting in the way.
In challenging the front-runner, the former North Carolina senator inevitably finds his own political vision becomes secondary to his differences with Clinton, a New York senator and former first lady.
The sustained focus on Clinton seemed to irritate Edwards in an interview with Reuters, and his voice hardened as he faced questions about her rather than his own positions.
“I want to be certain that voters understand that they have a choice,” Edwards said. “I just think there are important choices for voters to make between myself and Senator Clinton.”
Edwards trails in third place, according to the latest Reuters/Zogby poll which showed Clinton with 35 percent and Sen. Barack Obama with 25 percent among Democrats seeking their party nomination for the November 2008 presidential election.
