Edwards Aims Tough Talk At Clinton And Obama

Presidential hopeful John Edwards says the Washington establishment is corrupt.

Edwards told a crowd at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire yesterday that real change begins with being honest.

The two candidates who lead in many polls, New York Senator Hillary Clinton and Illinois Senator Barack Obama also talk about change.

The former North Carolina senator challenged his rivals ownership of the word "change."

Edwards says the American people need to know the White House is not for sale and the Lincoln Bedroom is not for rent. The jab was aimed at Clinton. During her husband's presidency, big donors were allowed to stay in the famous bedroom.

Edwards later said he didn't mean to single out Clinton. A spokeswoman for Clinton says attacking her won't help Edwards' campaign.
