Edwards on Clinton: 'She's for status quo, I'm for change.'

Edwards says Clinton will maintain status quo.

NEW MARKET, New Hampshire (CNN) –

Sen. John Edwards continued his attacks on Sen. Hillary Clinton Tuesday by saying he would be the candidate of change and that she would maintain the status quo.

"Our government in Washington has become corrupt, it's not operating effectively, it's rigged against the interest of most Americans. And I don't defend the system," the former senator from North Carolina said.

Edwards then called the New York Senator a "defender" of the system because she continued to take money from Washington lobbyists and big interest groups.

"She's entitled to do that but it presents voters in New Hampshire with a very different option. I don't defend the system, she's for status quo, I'm for change," said Edwards.

When asked by reporters if he had contributed to what Clinton has called a "piling on" of attacks against her, Edwards said he would "continue to make voters know what their choices are."
