Obama provided one of the debate’s most light-hearted moments when asked about Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison’s comment that Bill Clinton — Sen. Clinton’s husband who, as president, was hugely popular with black voters — was America’s “first black president.”

“I would have to investigate more of Bill’s dancing ability and some of this other stuff before I accurately judged whether he was, in fact, a brother,” Obama said to laughter from the audience and other candidates.
