Attacked from the Left by "Democratic Courage" PAC:

The spot mocks Hillary for proposing $5,000 "baby bonds" then backing off them after Republican attacks. Democratic Courage's founder, Glenn Hurowitz, says the group has the resources to place a "modest" cable buy Wednesday morning, and is hoping today's release will raise them a bit more.

The point of the ad goes to one of Clinton's real vulnerabilities: The perception that she's driven by polls, not conviction. It also counters Monday's message that she, not Obama, is the fighter.

A couple of notes: The group's founders like Edwards, and have contributed modest sums to him, but there's no evidence the group is linked in any way to his campaign.
