WASHINGTON (CNN) - Sen. John Edwards, D-North Carolina, once again addressed at Thursday's Democratic presidential debate a $400 haircut he received recently and had paid for with campaign funds.
"Well, that was a mistake, which we've remedied. It was simply a mistake. But if the question is, Brian, whether I live a privileged and blessed lifestyle now, the answer to that's yes. A lot of us do. But it's not where I come from. And I've not forgotten where I come from."
Edwards then described an episode from his childhood when his family had to leave a resaurant because they could not afford anything on the menu.
