I've Learned from 2004 - Edwards

Speaking at Wake Forest University yesterday, former Vice Presidential candidate John Edwards said he has learned lessons from the election in 2004.

Edwards said that perhaps he was too inexperienced to run, and was concentrating too hard on being a good candidate.

This time, he said he is thinking about what he wants to do as President of the United States.

Edwards has also reiterated the mistake that he made in previously supporting and voting for the war in Iraq, and he is not interested in blaming anyone for that mistake.

Pushing again for Diplomacy in the region, Edwards said that if he were President he would be pursuing talks with Iran and Syria. He said U.S troops should be withdrawn from Iraq within the year.
