Edwards' Memorial Day Campaigning

Former Sen John Edwards (D-NC) wants Americans to spend Memorial Day weekend calling on Washington to end the Iraq War.

His campaign launched a website last weekend outlining his 10-point plan. He asks voters to greet veterans, send enlisted troops care packages and volunteer at local Veterans Administration hospitals. It's not sitting well with some veterans' groups:
"[Sen Edwards' idea is] as inappropriate as a political bumper sticker on an Arlington headstone." -- Statement from the American Legion
