(CNN) – Another candidate has now been heard from in the growing Barack Obama-Hillary Clinton war of words. This time, it is fellow Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards, who jabbing them Friday morning, calling their feud an example of “what’s wrong with Washington.”
Edwards’ comments came as he addressed the National Urban League presidential forum in St. Louis. Edwards spoke ahead of both Clinton and Obama.
He told the crowd, “If you're looking for what's wrong in Washington, why the system is broken, why the system doesn't work, one perfect example is what's been happening just over the course of the last four days. We've had two good people, Democratic candidates for president, who spent their time attacking each other instead of attacking the problems that this country's faced.”
As the crowd reacted to his line, Edwards laughed, “I got your attention with that one, didn't I? We need to be staying focused on what all of us together want to do for America.”
