Edwards, Clinton critical of Obama's praise for Reagan

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's praise of former President Ronald Reagan drew criticism from his rivals Friday, as they tried to capitalize on the former Republican president's unpopularity with many union Democrats. Obama responded to his critics by suggesting rival Hillary Rodham Clinton would be a "president whose plans change with the politics of the moment" - one of his most direct critiques of the US senator yet. John Edwards questioned Obama's commitment to labor in his final appeal to Nevada voters before their caucus on Saturday. "Ronald Reagan, the man who busted unions, the man who did everything in his power to destroy the organized labor movement, the man who created a tax structure that favored the richest Americans against middle class and working families, ... we know that Ronald Reagan is not an example of change for a presidential candidate running in the Democratic Party," Edwards said.
