The Best Campaign Response in the History of Mankind

As long as I can remember, there have always been those seminal moments, those unforgettable quips or campaign releases that really just sum up a race.
Often times, they don't even mean to do so - the words, the response, the news of the day, the general state of the state... the stars align and we get a so fundamentally perfect line, a perfect answer, a perfect response -- that you have to sit back and admire it.
In light of HRC's new Daisy ad -- and the importance of 3 AM
My colleague Carrie Budoff Brown e-mails from an Obama campaign conference call (big day for conference calls):
A reporter asked whether Clinton should drop out after Ohio and Texas. Obama adviser Richard Danzig responded:
"I would encourage you on March 5 to call Sen. Clinton at 3 a.m. and ask that question."
That's really just damn hilarious - and perfectly done.
Whatever happens the rest of this campaign, Richard Danzig takes home the "Quote of the Year".
