Fmr. Gov. Wilder Smashes Biden over 'Chains' Remarks

Earlier today in an interview with CNN, former Democratic Governor Douglas Wilder railed against the racially insensitive remarks that Vice President Joe Biden made earlier this week during a Danville campaign stop. Wilder warned the Vice President, "Slavery is nothing to joke about" and that "As far as I am concerned, the President would not associate himself with those remarks."

Biden's comments, including "they are going to put y'all back in chains" and "With your help...we can win North Carolina", have raised serious questions about Biden's contributions to the campaign. Wilder even goes so far as to suggest the President would be better off switching running-mates in the full interview.
