Heading into what is expected to be another highly-charged Democratic debate tomorrow, John Edwards is already setting an aggressive tone. Last week, for example, he refused to commit to supporting Hillary Clinton should she emerge the Democratic nominee. As reported on the New York Times political blog, The Caucus, Edwards was twice asked whether he would support Clinton should she come out on top, and both times demurred.
The move has apparently done nothing to help his popularity among his peers. Chris Dodd responded:
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?
Obama weighed in too:
“I am a Democrat, and I would support the Democratic nominee,” he said. With a smile, he added, “I intend it to be me.”
Biden affirmed his loyalty to the party—and back-handed Giuliani (again!):
“Of course. What’s the choice, Rudy Giuliani?”
The debate is scheduled to kick off Thursday at 5PM on CNN. Check back for liveblogging details, and get ready for more Democratic fisticuffs.
