Gibson gives each candidate a chance to take back a remark they made during the campaign. Hillary and Obama dodge. Edwards takes back his comment about Hillary’s jacket. But Richardson delivers a genuinely sweet moment of self-deprecation:
“We were asked who our favorite Supreme Court justice was, and I said [Justice Byron] White. … And then later I learned that White was against abortion rights. He was against civil rights. So that wasn’t a good one.”
And with that, he can drop out.
