Why Edwards attack Hillary
John Edwards, knew Hillary was going to be the winner no matter how much CNN FICTION and the other Media Fiction was giving all to Obama.. Simple he went after Hillary trying to get some of the votes, he didn't need to hit Obama,

1. "CNN Fiction and other media fiction" Such as what?
From what I've seen, the media had Hillary as the inevitable winner of the nomination.

6. All the Media were dancing for glee on Hilary's Grave
and had her losing by 10 points. Did you not watch TV the
before NH. They were in their Obama Swoon and hand him
winning by double digits.

2. Edwards never attacked Hillary
Stop playing the "victim" card. Edwards points out the truth. Pointing out the truth is not attacking.

4. Well said, isrobert! Edwards is entitled to offer up an alternative
choice and should be commended for doing so!

3. And Edwards truly is for change and not about the status quo,
I love and support Edwards, but I'd be proud as can be if Obama ends up being his VP running mate. Wouldn't that be sweet? With only two states down, it's hard to say how this will turn out, but as Howard Deans reminds us, there may not be a clear frontrunner until March.

8. I'm sure Obama thanks you for seeing him in the subservient position.

13. What would be subservient about VP? You think Cheney is
subservient? I see it as Obama being the future, sorry if that offends you, but first we must attend to cleaning up corporatism so that gov't can be ret'd to the people. There will be a time for unity after that. A ticket of Edwards/Obama is a good thing, there's no I in team, not in my progressive heart. Unity is not just a word.

5. Could you quote the attack?
I watched the debate, but I can't recall the words in the attack.

7. Edwards ego was getting to him
After he won second place in Iowa, he tried to make it between Obama and him and attacked Hillary as irrelevant, status quo and it backfired on him. He was doing better when he tried to stay on positive message, too bad. I fear he is an opportunist as much as anyone else.

12. Edwards has made substantive criticisms of Hillary for her own disdain for progressive principles
Not personal attacks and certainly nothing along the lines of racial innuendoes for which the Clinton campaign has been responsible. Very big difference.
