Biden sorry for the "pain" he caused in reminiscing about working with segregationists

“I chose to work within the system to make it better,” he continued. “Was I wrong to do that? I don’t think so. I do believe we have work to do, even with those who we find repugnant.”

However, Biden added, “Now, was I wrong a few weeks ago to somehow give the impression to people that I was praising those men who I successfully opposed time and again? Yes, I was. I regret it. I’m sorry for any of the pain or misconception they may have caused anybody.”
