Feeling the fallout after Senator Kamala Harris (CA) ran roughshod over him during the recent Democratic debate, former VP and 2020 contender Joe Biden is finally apologizing for his previous remarks in praise of white segregationists. “Was I wrong a few weeks ago to somehow give the impression to people that I was praising those men whom I successfully opposed time and again? Yes, I was,” Biden said. “I regret it, and I’m sorry for any of the pain or misconception maybe I caused anybody.” “Those men” were Senator James O. Eastland (D-MS) and Senator Herman Talmadge (D-GA) whose “political civility” was given more merit by Biden than civil rights and which cost him 10 points to Harris. Though it’s a political eternity until primaries begin, Harris is comfortably the lead horse in the race.

After a serious shellacking at the hands of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) at the recent Democratic Party presidential debate, the former vice president now regrets ever praising two white segregationists as examples of political civility.
Giving a speech in South Carolina over the weekend, Biden acknowledged that his remarks may indeed have been hurtful to some people, according to HuffPost.
