Live-blogging the Democratic debate
Opening question: race

Hillary: Barack and I agree that "neither race nor gender should be part of this campaign."

"We both have exuberant and uncontrollable supporters."

Barack: "I think Hillary said it well." We need "not to fall into the same traps of division that we have in the future."

Edwards: "We've made great progress, but we're not finished with that progress." He has an anecdote, of course: he saw "four young men sit down at a lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina" during the days of segregation.
