Biden Defends Non-Apology to Anita Hill

Friday on ABC’s The View, Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden discussed the controversy over his treatment of Anita Hill during the 1991 Clarence Thomas Supreme court nomination.

Biden, who was on the Judiciary Committee during the Thomas hearings called Hill this month, but she told the New York Times she was not satisfied with his comments.

“I’m not going to judge whether or not it was appropriate, whether she thought it was sufficient, but I said privately what I said publicly,” Biden said. “I’m sorry she was treated the way she was treated. I wish we could have figured out a better way to get this thing done. I did everything in my power to do what I thought was within the rules to be able to stop things.”
