Obama & Edwards Keep the Pressure on Clinton

Not a moment has passed in this debate where Clinton has not been at the center of the conversation.

After refusing to offer a direct answer to a challenge that she tell the National Archives to release the papers she as First Lady exchanged with President Clinton on her health care program (it was not her decision to make, Clinton said), she came under withering fire from Obama and Edwards.

From Obama: "I'm glad that Hillary [used] the phrase 'turn the page' but this is an example of not turning the page." He added that after "one of the most secretive administrations in history" a need for transparency was more dire then ever.

From Edwards: "If people want the status quo, Senator Clinton is your candidate." He argued that Clinton has taken the most money from the health care industry, the defense industry and from Washington lobbyists. Edwards even threw in the kicker that perhaps the reason Clinton was the subject of so much talk among Republicans was because they may actually want to run against her.

Clinton AGAIN refused to engage, choosing to instead touch on a touchstone issue for the Democratic base. "I think we were making progress in the 1990s until the Supreme Court handed the presidency to George Bush," she said.
