This Week: Edwards On "Demanding Change"

icon Download icon Download (h/t Heather)

On This Week, host George Stephanopoulos asks Democratic presidential contender John Edwards to respond to Hillary Clinton's latest talking point that though Edwards says he'll demand changed (and Obama will "hope" for change), that she is the only one who is committed to working for change.

What I'm saying is I'm going to be the president, like Teddy Roosevelt, and like others like him-Harry Truman, who understood that there is an important battle against those interests-well financed, well entrenched, that prevent the kind of change that the country needs, that's for the greater good. That's for the greater good of the people. That's the battle I'm talking about and that's the fight I'm going to take on and win. And those who think you can do it by making a deal with him or compromising and conciliation...what possible reason do they have to give their power away voluntarily? They will not do it until you effectively taken their power away from them.
