Former Sen. John Edwards's (D-N.C.) campaign widened its sights Tuesday to include Democratic rival Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) and his foreign policy speech commemorating the five-year anniversary of his first speech against the Iraq war.
Echoing criticisms lodged by surrogates of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) earlier in the year, Edwards's campaign charged that Obama was complicit in prolonging the war by voting in favor of several war funding bills since coming to the Senate...
...The criticisms represent an apparent change in strategy for the Edwards campaign. Thus far this year it has directed most of its fire at Clinton's campaign.
Edwards's campaign also blasted Obama for parroting the former senator in a foreign policy speech he gave Tuesday in which he said he wanted to work towards ending nuclear proliferation. They said the senator has followed Edwards on a number of issues this campaign year, including healthcare, poverty and now nuclear proliferation.
