ABC News’ Teddy Davis Reports: Either you love her or you don’t — that’s how former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., summed up Hillary Clinton — his Democratic presidential rival — during a Wednesday appearance on MSNBC’s "Hardball."

"I think the reality is people in this country either love Hillary Clinton or they don’t. And that’s just the way she is in many ways through no fault of her own. And I think that’s what Obama was talking about," said Edwards in reference to an interview that Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., gave to The Washington Post.

While joining Obama in portraying Clinton as divisive, Edwards would not label her "corrupt" when prompted to do so by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews.

In his interview with the Washington Post’s Dan Balz, Obama argued that he has a greater capacity than Clinton to unify the country and move it out of what he called "ideological gridlock."
