NPR's Mara Liasson reports on last night's Democratic presidential candidate debate in Baltimore. Sponsored by the Congressional Black Caucus, the debate was highlighted by discussion of the importance of the black vote and whether Democrats take African Americans for granted. While all nine candidates took on President Bush over his conduct of the situation in Iraq and the state of the economy, the debate showed some divisions among the Democrats as well.
