Elizabeth Edwards Pleas With Coulter

June 27, 2007

Elizabeth Edwards called in to the MSNBC program "Hardball" with Chris Matthews Tuesday asking conservative commentator Ann Coulter to stop personal attacks on Edwards' husband.

Coulter was a guest on the program appearing on an outdoor set with dozens of supporters and detractors waiting to ask the controversial commentator questions.

According to the Edwards campaign, Elizabeth Edwards decided she wanted to call in when she heard Coulter would be asking questions. The plea came a day after Coulter said she wished Edwards' husband, John Edwards, had been killed by terrorists.

During the exchange Edwards called Coulter's remarks "a dialog on hatefulness and ugliness." Coulter charged that Edwards was calling on her to stop speaking altogether.

"I don't think I need to be told to stop writing by Elizabeth Edwards, thank you" said Coulter.
