Senator Biden: My State was a Slave State
Sen. Biden Brags:
Oh, my gosh. I really don't think our state's past history as a slave state is something to brag about. Ugh. Will the fact that we had slavery here really make our Senator more palatable to Southerners as a Presidential candidate? I can't imagine.
I so wish Senator Biden would pause and think a minute before he speaks! This is hardly the first time he's opened mouth and inserted foot.

And here's the transcript for this little clip, also from FoxNews:
WALLACE: And, finally, Senator Biden — finally, we've got about 30 seconds left, but I can't let you go without some politics. As we've mentioned, you're in South Carolina right now, on the campaign trial. Thirty seconds or less, what kind of a chance would a Northeastern liberal like Joe Biden stand in the South if you were running in Democratic primaries against southerners like Mark Warner and John Edwards.
BIDEN: Better than anybody else. You don't know my state. My state was a slave state. My state is a border state. My state has the eighth-largest black population in the country. My state is anything from a Northeast liberal state.
