‘An­gry’ Ed­wards

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

“The buzz on the Demo­cratic side to­day is a re­port that John Ed­wards won’t yet com­mit to en­dors­ing Hil­lary Clin­ton if she wins the nom­i­na­tion,” the Bos­ton Globe re­ports at www.bos­ton.com.

“ ‘I am sur­prised at just how an­gry John has be­come,’ fel­low Demo­crat Chris Dodd said in a state­ment. ‘This is not the same John Ed­wards I once knew. Of course, we should all come to­gether to sup­port the nom­i­nee. I won­der which of the Repub­li­cans John prefers to Hil­lary?’

“The New York Times re­ported that in an in­ter­view [two weeks ago], Ed­wards, the for­mer U.S. sen­a­tor from North Carolina who was the 2004 vice pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee, twice re­fused to say he would sup­port Clin­ton. Ed­wards has been the most ag­gres­sive in go­ing af­ter Clin­ton, lump­ing her in with what he calls a cor­rupt cul­ture in Wash­ing­ton.

“Cam­paign­ing in New Hamp­shire [on Nov. 13], Ed­wards ap­peared to back­track from the in­ter­view. ‘I fully ex­pect to sup­port the Demo­cratic nom­i­nee,’ he said, ‘and I fully ex­pect to be the Demo­cratic nom­i­nee.’ “
