Washington (AP) -- Three Democratic presidential candidates are trying to appeal to the passionate foes of the Iraq War.
In separate speeches before liberal activists Tuesday, New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, Illinois Senator Barack Obama and former North Carolina Senator John Edwards are all trying to show what sets them apart in the democratic field.
In prepared remarks, Edwards pressed candidates still in Congress to force an end to the war, saying there should be "no more we'll-get-around-to-it-next-time."
Obama says he warned those in Congress in 2002 not to authorize the war, while he was serving in the Illinois state legislature.
Meanwhile, Richardson, who has been making slow progress in the race, tried to differentiate himself by stressing that he would leave "zero troops" in Iraq.
