BOW, N.H. – Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards said New Hampshire voters should decide who to vote for based on issues of characters instead of issues.
Edwards said voters should look first to those they believe are telling the truth and then who they “trust to fight like hell to make it happen”.
But recent polling shows that Edwards may have trust issues of his own. A recent poll in Iowa said voters believed Barack Obama was the most genuine and most likely to say what he believes. Edwards was in second, while Hillary Clinton was in third.
Edwards is wrapping up a long weekend of campaigning in New Hampshire while rival Senators Hillary Clinton and John Edwards were in Iowa.
He was also critical of some in his own party who he believes won’t change Washington enough.
“I think the mistake we made is to believe that we just have to be better at this game of getting elected things will be better, but for what purpose” Edwards said.
