An eighth-grader pressed Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards on Thursday about why he couldn't guarantee that U.S. troops would be out of Iraq by the end of the next president's first term.
The exchange came at Richmond Middle School hours after the Democratic debate Wednesday night. Edwards and leading rivals Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama conceded that they couldn't ensure that U.S. forces would be out of Iraq by the end of the term in 2013.
