Democratic dispute ends in stabbing (http://www.philly.com/inquirer/breaking/news_breaking/20080225_Democratic_dispute_ends_in_stabbing.html)

Maybe the Democratic debates should come with an R rating.
Things turned violent in a Montgomery County home during a televised debate in Texas between candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

It ended with Obama supporter Sean Shurelds being taken to Hahnemann Hospital with stab wounds that were allegedly inflicted by his brother-in-law, Clinton backer Jose Ortiz.

"Mr. Shurelds was complaining that Clinton was trashing Obama," said Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Furman. "Ortiz said that Barack was not a realist."

Vetri Furman said that last Thursday Shurelds started choking Ortiz from behind in a Collegeville home. At some point, she said, Ortiz grabbed a kitchen knife and plunged into Shurelds's stomach.

When Upper Providence police arrived, they found Shurelds bleeding heavily from the stab wounds, she said. He was admitted to Hahnemann Unversity Hospital in critical condition, but has since been upgraded to stable, according to Vetri Furman. Hospital officials did not return calls.

Ortiz, who celebrated his 28th birthday on Saturday, was being held in Montgomery County prison on $20,000 bail.

"I certainly understand that politics, and this race in particular has generated a lot of passion," said Vetri Furman, "but this is one of the most unusual expressions of political passion I have ever seen."

Damn, they couldn't settle this mess over a Corona and call it a day? :huh:

The Corona is probably what started the fight in the first place.
