- John Edwards has been campaigning in New Hamapshire.
PORTSMOUTH — The campaign of Democratic presidential contender John Edwards is setting a blistering primary pace in the Granite State.
After a week of issue-based forums throughout the state — on topics ranging from veteran's affairs to global warming to reforming the country's disabilities laws — the 2004 vice presidential nominee and former North Carolina senator and his wife Elizabeth will criss-cross and cover 13 locations in three days spreading his populist campaign message.
In the Seacoast region, the events include a house party [Saturday] morning with Elizabeth Edwards in Rye hosted by Mike Schwartz and Sharyn Potter; a house party hosted by Jim and Susan McGeoughin in Epping Saturday afternoon with Sen. Edwards; and a town hall meeting late Saturday afternoon Sen. Edwards at Henry Laws Park in Dover.
- Edwards says spat between Clinton and Obama is bad for Democrats
DOVER, N.H. --Presidential hopeful John Edwards said the tiff between Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama is completely wrong for the Democratic Party.
"The last thing we need is two presidential candidates fighting with each other, instead of fighting for the change we need in America," Edwards said. "And, man, do we need change in the worst possible way."
We do need change in the worse possible way, and I don't think the others will bring us real change. John Edwards will lead our movement for change.
- John Edwards takes on Ronmey and Guiliani:
On a two-day campaign swing through New Hampshire, Edwards also responded to criticism Republicans Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani have thrown at him for proposing a hike in capital gains taxes.
"What I say to Romney and Giuliani is all that money that they're making from their investments -- in Romney's case hundreds of millions of dollars -- all that money they're making from investments, I want them to pay their fair share of taxes on those investments," Edwards said. "I want them to be treated not better than average Americans."
This is why the media shuts him out. How dare he want to treat the wealthy (which includes the owners and many media personalities) "not better than average Americans."
Economic fairness is not only morally right, but the American people know in their guts that we need it. It is the winning issue of 2008.

If you watch nothing else, watch this. It is what our fight is all about:
He knows which side he is on. Ours.
- Elizabeth Edwards at BlogHer, the blogging convention,on July 28, 2007.
On being attacked on the Internet and the media: "My experience of trolls; they don't go away if you ignore them. The same thing is true of Ann Coulter."
On stating her views, even when they differ from the campaign's: "No one's ever asked me to stop talking."
On Hillary Clinton and the Defense of Marriage Act: "She's in favor of repealing some of it. John and I are in favor of repealing all of it."
On universal healthcare: "The national will is there. But to pay for it we're going to have to raise taxes."
On Hillary Clinton: "If you say as a woman you should support me, then you should lead on the issues that are important to women."
