Edwards Zings Clinton On Iraq: Voters Want An Apology

| Tue Feb. 27, 2007 5:45 PM PST

I know, I know, it's too soon. Everyone is already sick of hearing about what Obama's finance chair said about Bill and Hillary and what Romney, the flip-flop maniac, had to say about McCain's only seemingly inconsistent stance on abortion. But is it really too early? Judging from the many comments on my posts covering the Edwards netroots drama, some of you are quite interested in the early, and excessive, election gossip, er... coverage. (TomDispatch has a great essay on why you care.)

Without further ado, more election gossip: Edwards seems to, once again, be calling Clinton out on her inability to apologize for her vote to authorize the war. He had this to say at a press conference this morning in response to a question as to why he is so insistent on apologizing for his vote to authorize the war:

"They [the voters] want you to tell the truth when you believe you have made a mistake and they want you to change course when something is not working."

Edwards' campaign has not made clear, either way, if these comments were or were not directed at the New York senator, but one can only assume. Seems everyone wants Clinton to apologize -- Salon has actually written an apology speech for her. Pretty funny and definitely worth a read.
