(Newser) – In the final question of the night at Tuesday's debate, Anderson Cooper asked the candidates which enemy they're most proud to have made over the years. The responses, as rounded up by the Guardian:

  • Jim Webb: “The enemy soldier that threw the grenade that wounded me, but he’s not around right now to talk to," said the Vietnam vet.
  • Bernie Sanders: “At the top of the list, I would love Wall Street and the pharmaceutical industry.”
  • Hillary Clinton: Her list was longest: The NRA, health insurers, drug companies, the Iranians, "and, probably, the Republicans."
  • Martin O'Malley: The NRA, he said to applause.
  • Lincoln Chafee: The coal lobby, over climate change.
