Democratic Presidential Debate in Los Angeles

KFSN The first Democratic debate between just Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and the last before Super Tuesday took a decidedly friendlier tone from the outset.

Obama said, "I was friends with Hillary before this race, I will be friends with her afterwards.

"Differences with Barack pale in comparison to the Republicans. Their differences were highlighted early...solutions for healthcare, the mortgage crisis and national security; specifically: Iran," said Clinton.

Things did get contentious when the debate focused on immigration reform and drivers licenses for illegal immigrants. But even that confrontation ended on a friendly note.

Earlier in the day, the Obama campaign announced it had raised $32 million dollars in January alone. The Clinton campaign will not release its fundraising total for the month until its required to in April.
