Transcript: Democratic Presidential Debate in Durham, N.H. (washingtonpost.com)

SHARPTON: Well, I think that -- I think all of us have an opportunity to beat Bush if we do not break and chase away from our party the people that we're going to have to mobilize to come out.

What I start hearing today is dangerous. That's why I didn't raise my hand.

Al Gore went to New York today. He should have noticed Tammany Hall is not there anymore. Bossism is not in this party. To talk about people ought not run and that people ought...

(APPLAUSE)

... to get out of this race is bossism that belongs in the other party.

We waited four years after some of us were disenfranchised, some of us in Duvall County couldn't vote, so we can express ourselves. And we're not going to have any big name come in now and tell us the field should be limited and we can't be heard.

(APPLAUSE)

The Republicans shut us up four years ago. Al Gore -- no Democrat should shut us up today. Let the people decide on the nominee. Bossism shouldn't happen.

I know that Governor Dean and Al Gore love the Internet; www.bossism doesn't work on my computer.

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)
Works on my computer, if you add '.com'.
