Well apparently he would!
The top Democrat in the U.S. Senate apologized on Saturday for comments he made about Barack Obama's race during the 2008 presidential bid and are quoted in a yet-to-be-released book about the campaign.And Joe Biden says "Don't forget clean, Harry! He's clean too!" Reid & Robert Byrd then broke into a rousing duet of "Old Man River" and closed with "Mammy".
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada described in private then-Sen. Barack Obama as "light skinned" and "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one." Obama is the nation's first African-American president.
Good grief, I don't know whether to laugh at them or feel sorry for them.
