With Edwards Out, Clinton and Obama Face Off

Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama debate Thursday for the first time since their bitter contest in South Carolina — and for the first time without John Edwards. Edwards withdrew from the presidential race Wednesday, but he has yet to endorse another candidate.

Michele Norris talks with Mara Liasson about this final debate, five days before Super Tuesday.
