Anderson,

Anyone can be an agent for change if the conditions are right. Since all of the candidates are now talking about change, we need to hear more specifics on what "change" means to each candidate and how they plan to implement it.

I hope that you will try to get us those answers.

Well - sadly, John Edwards said nothing that we haven't heard already. Too bad Anderson wasn't able to get more time with him! I'm afraid that, despite the fact that we're months away from choosing a president, we're already hearing the same things over and over again. I'd be thrilled if that turns out not to be the case.

"When I come into the White House"?

A little overconfident perhaps?

Anderson: I am all over your blogs tonight because you have brought up all the Democrats -- John Edwards -- there is absolutely nothing that could me stand behind him. He is the epitome of a "slimy" candidate to me, someone I would never ever consider.

Edwards didn't say how he would be an agent of change other than the money and the lobbyists. There is more to it than that at least for the voters. I want to hear some specifics and how he expects to accomplish them.

Its nice to know he isn't taking money from lobbyists and big corporations but it didn't move me to want to vote for him - where's the inspiration Mr. Edwards??

Edwards' campaign is completely devoid of substance because he not only hasn't done what he says he believes in, but he does not say what the "change" is that he wants to impart.

There's no way this person will get enough votes to win the nomination much less the Presidency.

John Edwards' message is that if we can only ruin the corporations in America, all will be well. He, as President will try to decrease businesses, and increase the power of Congress and Washington, making them more pervasive and powerful than ever. He spent most of his life suing corporations and now he wants to go after them with laws and penalties and litigation. He's just a vapid leader who believes completely in the power of big government and does not believe that an individual can make it without the direction and guidance of the government.

I am so sorry Americans!
Every nation deserves its leader!
Lucks to me that Hillary is to advance for you.
You are behind England, Germany, India, Pakistan... even Afghanistan one day.

Obama-Osama will bring you the "Change" similar to South Africa, I suppose.

Lets you suffer 4 more years; at least!

Congratulations!!! I think you got the first interview with Edwards that didn't include name-dropping of Americans in unfortunate circumstances whose lives will dramatically change if Edwards wins the White House! He's been recycling that old Kerry-Edwards tactic throughout this entire campaign. So, for the next speech, Mr. Edwards, take Eden in Las Vegas, Nevada who's tired of the name-dropping. K?

I was leaning towards voting for Edwards until I heard his post-New Hampshire election speech Tuesday night. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it a verbatim repeat of the post-Iowa speech? It sure seemed like the same thing. I appreciate his stand on big business and health care provider superpowers. The worst thing he could do is trivialize Nataline Sarkisyan's plight by continuing to play that broken record. This repetition gives me the feeling that he has a hard time memorizing new speeches, or he needs a new speech writer. We get it, John, but it's time for some fresh material. I'm in Florida, so I have 3 weeks to pick a candidate. After last night's speech by Edwards, I'm leaning towards Obama. Today, anyway.

The reality is that Edwards is running in 3rd and likely to drop out after Super Tuesday. I am wondering what impact the fact that Kerry endorsed Obama will have on Edward's choice of whom to give his support to, if anyone? Rumor is there is bad blood between Edwards and Kerry after 2004. But Edwards supports the changes Obama is talking about. So does Edwards stand with Kerry again and support Obama or does Hillary benefit from Kerry's support of Obama?
