Edwards Urges Greater U.S. Involvement in World
Today former North Carolina Senator John Edwards visit Darthmouth College. At the town hall forum, with 500 people, he said that if president "he would spend the first 100 days visiting foreign countries in an attempt to improve the way those countries feel about the United States." In the speech he also wanted U.S. intervention in Darfur and withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq. James Pindell made the observation that "This was Edwards second trip to the state in the month since he announced he was running for president. Those trips – first to Portsmouth, and Wednesday to Hanover – were to two of the most liberal pockets of the state." Perhaps Edwards is trying to stake out some liberal territory before Clinton or Obama can move in.
