Edwards Will Pull No Punches

In just a little while, former Democratic Senator and 2008 presidential candidate John Edwards will speak at the Riverside Church in Harlem. Greg Sargent at TPM Cafe has obtained some excerpts from the speech, and notes that given the speech’s location, this line on Iraq is almost certainly a shot at Edwards’ 2008 rival, Senator Hillary Clinton. A quote from Edwards:

"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.
