Edwards: Bush Not A "Good Man Trying To Do The Best He Can"

Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards told an audience at New Hampshire's Dartmouth College that he doesn't believe President Bush is a good man trying to do the best he can when it comes to Iraq.

Edwards, a former North Carolina senator and the Democratic Party's 2004 vice presidential nominee, told reporters before his speech that he has learned more since leaving office than he did during his one term as senator. Calling himself the "candidate of transformational change," Edwards said one of his top priorities would be re- establishing America's ability to lead in the world.

If the United States doesn't show leadership as Iran and North Korea try to develop nuclear weapons, he says, the world community won't act.
