Democrats debated Iraq scenarios and health care policy at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H., on Wednesday at an MSNBC forum moderated by Tim Russert.
Finally tonight, the Democrats debate in New Hampshire. NewsHour correspondent Kwame Holman has our report.
It was the second time Democrats gathered to debate in the nation's first primary state. Last night's setting was the campus of Dartmouth College.
Here is Tim Russert.
TIM RUSSERT, Host, NBC's "Meet the Press": We have some big issues to talk about tonight, so let's start right now.
Moderator Tim Russert of NBC began by asking each candidate to pledge to have all U.S. troops out of Iraq by 2013. Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich readily agreed.
REP. DENNIS KUCINICH (D), Ohio: I want everyone to know, I want the American people to know, that I've been on this from the beginning, and I know that we can get out of there three months after I take office
But the three candidates leading in the opinion polls all said "no."
SEN. BARACK OBAMA (D), Illinois: I don't want to make promises not knowing what the situation's going to be three or four years out.
SEN. HILLARY CLINTON (D), New York: It is very difficult to know what we're going to be inheriting.
FORMER SEN. JOHN EDWARDS (D), Presidential Candidate: I cannot make that commitment.
