Soul-Searching During the Debate
The soul-searching continues at the South Carolina Democratic presidential debate.
Brian Williams asked each candidate to admit the biggest mistake they had made in the past four years.
Obama's answer was the most intriguing -- citing his decision to leave Washington during an Easter recess while the Senate was still meeting and allow Republicans to pass legislation injecting the federal government into the Terri Schiavo case. "I should have stayed in the Senate and fought," Obama said.
Edwards and Dodd both said their votes for the use of force resolution against Iraq in 2002 was their biggest mistake. "Unfortunately I will have to live with that forever," Edwards said.
Clinton went for self-deprecation ("I don't have enough time to tell you the mistakes I have made over the years) before citing her failed attempt to reform health care and her belief that President Bush would go to the United Nations and pursue diplomacy in Iraq before force was used.
