In a sign of the increasingly bitter feud between the leading Democratic presidential contenders, Sen. Hillary Clinton's campaign Monday accused John Edwards of acting like President Bush and dividing Democrats.
On Saturday, Edwards, while campaigning in Iowa, criticized the Clinton camp for planting a question in the audience, saying the practice is "what George Bush does."
"George Bush goes to events that are staged, where people are screened, where they're only allowed to ask questions if the questions are favorable to George Bush and set up in his favor," the former senator from North Carolina said.
But it is Edwards who is acting more like the sitting Republican president, the Clinton camp says. "What George Bush does is attack Democrats and divide the country," Clinton campaign spokesman Mo Elleithee said Monday. "Sen. Edwards' campaign resembles that more and more every day."
Edwards comments came after the Grinnell College's "Scarlet and Black" newspaper reported a student's account of being pulled aside before a campaign stop in Newton, Iowa, and asked to pose a specific question.

Is the "B" word the new "N" word
Hillary is now calling out John Edwards for acting like "B"ush because he is attacking her and dividing people like a "Bush". John Edwards is saying that planting softball questions in town hall meetings is acting like a "B"ush.
Has it really fallen this far. Has the sitting president of the United States become a curse word for Democrats. Is the real enemy George Bush, really. Can the leaders of the Democratic party be so irresponsible as to paint our president as the bad guy. Look at the slow deterioration of Democracy and Capitalism by the KGB inspired leadership of Yeltsin, or the dangerous Rhetoric of Hugo Chavez, The nuclear weapon empowered nutcase running half of Korea, the Genocide in Rwanda and the Rampant HIV plague killing millions in Africa, Nuclear weapon empowered Pakistan lies at the doorstep of Anarchy, and Iran continues to help kill our troops every day. And the problem the Democrats face is George Bush. Is he doing a great job? I can't see that anyone is offering a better plan other than, I would talk to them more. Really, what these problems needs is more talk. Wow, how disconnected from reality can we get.
