Edwards on Hillary, Iraq

In case you missed it, here’s a video of that eventful John Edwards speech at Riverside Church which included the following indirect (but unmistakable) criticism of Hillary Clinton:

“If you’re in Congress and you know this war is going in the wrong direction, it is no longer enough to study your options and keep your own counsel.

“Silence is betrayal. Speak out, and stop this escalation now. You have the power to prohibit the president from spending any money to escalate the war – use it. “

That message drew a response from Howard Wolfson, representing the first direct engagement by the Clinton campaign of any of her perspective opponents.

Tomorrow, Hillary will elaborate on her views when she discusses her trip to Iraq and Afghanistan with Evan Bayh and John M. McHugh.
