the issue was far more personal with joe biden. he lost his son last year. it's difficult for him and his family to get through that, and if he wasn't 110%, he wasn't going to run, and to be frank with you, i think he made the best decision for himself and for his family. i think it's the nation's loss, but obviously, he's got to do what's best for himself and the family. >> let me play one clip of bernie sanders from last night, from his big victory speech here in new hampshire. >> now, i have been criticized during this campaign for many, many things. every single day. that's okay, that's all right. they're throwing everything at me, except the kitchen sink, and i have the feeling that kitchen sink is coming pretty soon as well. >> dick, the kitchen sink is coming pretty soon. are you worried it's going to be a vicious battle in south carolina? >> i hope not. obviously in '08 when the clintons came to south carolina, it got bad, and i hope we don't revisit that same sort of campaign. bernie sanders has connection with african-american voters, for instance.
