A telling and all too common moment from this week’s debate:
EDWARDS:…And the most important issue is she says she will bring change to Washington, while she continues to defend a system that does not work, that is broken, that is rigged and is corrupt; corrupted against the interest of most Americans and corrupted…(APPLAUSE)
BLITZER: All right…
EDWARDS: … and corrupted for a very small, very powerful, very well-financed group.
BLITZER: We’re going to…
EDWARDS: So we have fundamental differences.
BLITZER: We’re going to get to all of these issues, including energy and Iran and everything else.

And does she disagree with the idea that the system in Washington is broken, or that she’s been defending it?
