Default Reid apologizes for Obama negro comment

WASHINGTON - Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid apologized on Saturday for saying Barack Obama should seek — and could win — the White House because Obama was a "light skinned" African-American "with no Neggro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."
Obama quickly accepted, saying "As far as I am concerned, the book is closed."
Reid made the comments in private during the long 2008 campaign, according to a new book about that election, which elevated Obama from first-term Illinois senator to the first black president.
Harry Reid FTW
