John Edwards Creates Anti Hillary Ad for Republicans

John Edwards calls this little rovian ad, The Politics of Parsing. Will the Republicans thank John Edwards for this masterful cut and paste piece? Obviously Hillary's camp could very easily cut and paste a similarly scathing ad about John Edwards. Yet Hillary has a history of not going negative. She fires her nasty shots at Republicans.

Update: Michael van der GaliĆ«n: It's awesome in its dishonesty. . .This isn’t a ‘normal’ attack, this is truly dirty politics. This is the kind of stuff you use against the guy from the other party. Well, normally that is.
