John Edwards NC Senator

Presidential candidate John Edwards says he opposes a free trade agreement between the United States and South Korea.

He is telling Michigan Democrats it would be bad for the auto industry.

At a speech in Detroit, Edwards also talked about some of his policy proposals, which include a withdrawal of forces from Iraq, universal health care and a repeal of some of President Bush's tax cuts.

Edwards says the Iraq war is a -- quoting -- "bleeding sore." He says Bush should sign legislation that would fund the war but also set a withdrawal date for troops.

Bush opposes a withdrawal date.
