Sen. Edwards: If Iraq War Vote Was Wrong, 'Be Honest About It'
Right on, John!
Sen. Edwards: If Iraq War Vote Was Wrong, 'Be Honest About It' - Politico.com:
John Edwards said today that he apologized for his 2002 vote approving the invasion of Iraq because he realized about two years ago he should not have given George W. Bush the authority to wage war.
“I thought it was important, if I believed that, to take responsibility for it and take that responsibility publicly,” the Democratic presidential candidate said in a telephone interview.
Edwards, who finished fourth in the 2004 New Hampshire Democratic primary and was John Kerry’s running mate in the general election, spoke to UnionLeader.com on his way to private meetings in Knoxville, Tenn.
