Sen. Chris Dodd and Sen. Hillary Clinton had their own debate at the end of the night. Clinton said she understands New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's plan to issue driver's licenses to illegal immigrants.Clinton wouldn't nail down where she stood on the issue except to say she understood where Spitzer was coming from.
Dodd said licenses should not be extended to illegal immigrants. He said it is a privilege, not a right.
Health care is another story he said because it protects the public health at large.
Sen. Barack Obama was for the issuance of licenses to track illegal immigrants, but said the larger issue of immigration reform needs to be tackled.
