What John Kerry had to say about John Edwards

"In the Senate four years -- and that is the full extent of public life -- no international experience, no military experience, you can imagine what the advertising is going to be next year."

"When I came back from Vietnam in 1969 I don't know if John Edwards was out of diapers then. Well, I'm sure he was out of diapers."

"I think the American people want an experienced hand at the helm of state. This is not the time for on-the-job training in the White House on national security issues."

"I think I have 35 years of experience in international security, foreign policy, and military affairs, and I think that makes an enormous difference here. I think that the world is looking for leadership that is tested and sure."

"Most importantly, I do something John Edwards doesn't do, which is make health care available to every single American family. It doesn't do a lot of good to just have kids covered and, as often is the case, not have the parents covered, because the kids wind up still not getting to the doctor."

"Also, John Edwards, I notice, voted to give life to George Bush's tax cut, because he voted for the first round of that tax cut. I did not. I always thought it was a pig in the poke. He voted against the final passage, but he gave it life by sending it to the Republican House."

"It seems to me there's a huge amount of money that's been compiled in his campaign from one particular area of our economy [trial lawyers]. People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones."

"John [Edwards] has raised almost 50 percent of his money from one group of people in the United States of America."

"Edwards says he's the only one who can win states in the South. ... He can't win his own state."
