South Carolina Democratic debate: my favorite line

Monday's Democratic Debate in South Carolina was by all accounts a humdinger. I'll admit to not having watched it, mainly because at this stage of the game it's similar to watching the eighth regular-season matchup between the same two playoff-bound NBA teams: they know each other very well so there's no surprise moves, they've put out everything worthwhile there is to put out, and they're saving their energy for more important moments.

That said, this line from Obama inspired a great deal of sympathy from me toward Edwards:

There's no doubt that in a race where you've got an African-American, and a woman, and — and, John — there's no doubt that that has piqued interest.

This contest has two persons breaking down doors and...John. Poor guy.
