"Everytime [Barack Obama] speaks out for change, everytime I fight for change, the forces of status quo are going to attack. Every single time. And what we have to remember - and this is the overarching issue here, because what we really need in New Hampshire and in future state primaries, is we need an unfiltered debate between the agents of change about how we are going to bring about that change."
Given that Edwards has clarified what he means by change as ending corruption: ending the influence peddling by lobbies and so on, his new line of attack is that Hillary Clinton is actively supporting corrupt practices so she should not be allowed in primary debates.
I watched the debate last night, along with its post-debate analysis, and I watched continuing analysis of the debate this morning on Meet the Press and This Week with George Stephanopoulis. This speech by Edwards was replayed endlessly, but nobody mentioned how utterly outrageous it is. Edwards provided no evidence that Hillary is the champion of corruption, and he couldn't because it's bullshit. It's the dirtiest intraparty politics I've seen since Lyndon Johnson.
