Edwards Goes After Clinton and Obama

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards is preparing to take on some of his better-polling rivals for the nomination.

In a speech in New Hampshire this morning, Edwards plans to say that voters shouldn't pick a presidential candidate on the basis of either ``change rhetoric'' or a yearning for the past. Those are obvious pokes at Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Obama's campaign has portrayed his relatively new arrival in Washington and his pledge for change as an asset. Clinton has touted her experience, including her time in the White House as first lady. In his prepared remarks, Edwards says voters shouldn't accept any of that.

Edwards also plans to tell voters they can't simply swap ``the Washington insiders of one party for the Washington insiders of the
other.''

Edwards is returning to New Hampshire with his wife Elizabeth, their three children and a bus for a four-day tour.
