Live-blogging the Dem-Congressional Black Caucus debate
Why would Dr. King endorse you?

This is the cloying question that Wolf Blitzer asked each of the candidates to answer. John Edwards took the bait, mentioning his meeting yesterday with "Martin the Third," offering a laundry list of Edwards' own efforts that King would hypothetically endorse.

Barack Obama, on the other hand, gave the exact right answer: that Dr. King "would not endorse any of us." He would hold the candidates to accountability, Obama said.

After that, whatever Hillary Clinton said just didn't register.
