John Edwards says it's "obvious" North Carolina will play a paramount role in picking the Democratic nominee. He declined, though, to endorse either of his former rivals, Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama.
"When I have something to say about it, I'll let you guys know," Edwards said. "We would be blessed as a nation to have either one of them as president."
Clinton said she planned to talk to as many people in the state as she could about her mother. She said her mother's attempt to become the country's first female president opened her eyes to sexism.
The younger Clinton explained that her parents do not always agree when an audience member questioned Hillary Rodham Clinton's opposition to the North American Free Trade Agreement, which was signed by her husband.
"We don't agree on everything as a family," Clinton said. "I agree with my mother on most things, not everything. I agree with my father on most things, not everything. My mother and father agree on most things, not everything."
“He has a force that can transform the national level and the international level who our nation is,” Booker said.
