MANCHESTER, N.H. -- John Edwards, in his first rally since the Iowa Caucuses, branded himself as the "people's candidate" as he struggles to fight for attention and supporters.
"I am not the money candidate. I am not the glitz candidate. I am not the glamerous candidate," Edwards said in brief remarks in Manchester's Millyard area. "I am the people's candidate."
Edwards is the only major candidate who plans to skip tonight's major Democratic Party fund-raising dinner in Milford. He says there are no independents in that audience (and he is probably right). Instead he will hold a town hall meeting in Portsmouth.
