Rep. Kucinich took issue with John Edwards' record on trade.
(CNN) - Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio took a direct shot at fellow White House hopeful former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina at Thursday's CNN Democratic presidential debate.
"In the last debate, Hillary Clinton was criticized by John Edwards for some trade-related issue," said Kucinich. "But the fact of the matter is, John, you voted for China trade understanding that workers were going to be hurt. Now, you're a trial lawyer, you knew better."
When given the chance to respond, Edwards said, "I'm not sure what being a trial lawyer has to do with it."
Kucinich quickly shot back "product liability."
"Cute," Edwards responded before emphasizing the need to stop big corporations from lobbying the federal government.
