Live-blogging the ABC Philadelphia debate
Stage Wright

That Jeremiah Wright -- he just won't go away. Charlie Gibson just asked why Barack Obama disinvited Pastor Wright from the launch of his campaign, if he did not indeed know of Wright's comments about 9/11.

Obama explained that he was responding to different comments by Wright that had been published in Rolling Stone.

For her part, Hillary Clinton sounded very defensive when asked to defend her assertion that she would have left the church if Wright had been her pastor. Later, she said that Obama's explanation "is something that deserves further exploration." Then she went on to assert that Wright had "given over the church bulletin" for a message the leader of Hamas.
