"I think that had Sen. Biden not been a strong supporter of civil rights, had he been someone who, over his years of public service, had a shaky relationship with African Americans, I think we would all need to be very upset over his comments. But obviously he has done thing likes this before. We realize he made a mistake. He was putting his tongue ahead of his brain. I don't think you're going to find any African Americans who are going to be upset with him. He's a friend, always has been."
