They had the flag issue as part of the Presidential debate in 2000. (When the flag was still on top of the courthouse.) Of course being a Democrat, Al Gore had to say that the flag should come down. I thought that George Bush gave the better answer of saying that they were basically suggesting that "outsiders" should tell South Carolina what they should do.

Why, oh why, do they continually waste everyone's time with such a miniscule, local issue? An issue, that if it effects anyone, it's just those in a relatively small state in the Southeast.
