Mrs. Edwards criticizes Bush for veto threat
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Elizabeth Edwards, wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, strongly criticized President Bush for threatening to veto legislation which sets a timetable for withdrawing troops from Iraq.

"We don't have any override votes, but there is no prohibition to sending back exactly the same bill with exactly the same timetable," she said at the grand opening of her husband's New Hampshire campaign office. "And if he vetoes that, to send back another bill with the same timetable. Do not start capitulating to a president who is going against the will of the American people, the vote in 2006, and frankly the will of the Iraqi people as well."

Mrs. Edwards has been active on the campaign trail since her March announcement that she has had a recurrence of cancer.
