Senator Reid apologizes for racial remarks

U.S. Senate Votes On Health Care Reform Bill

A new book recounting the 2008 presidential campaign makes note of a comment Senator Harry Reid (D-Nv) made about why Senator Barack Obama would make an impressive presidential candidate.

The book "Game Change" reports that the Senator from Nevada said Obama would make a good candidate because of his light-skinned complexion and apparent lack of any Negro (yes, he used the word "Negro") dialect unless he choose to use one.

Mr. Reid extended an apology to the African-American community as well as the President. President Obama accepted Reid's apology.
