Clinton Defends Byrd's KKK Ties: "He Was Trying To Get Elected"
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/vid...t_elected.html
"He once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan, what does that mean? I'll tell you what it means. He was a country boy from the hills and hollows from West Virginia. He was trying to get elected," former President Bill Clinton said of Sen. Robert Byrd.



“Fleeting association”? Byrd was an active member of the Klan for at least a year, joining in 1942, and wrote to the Klan’s Imperial Wizard in 1946, saying that the Klan was “needed today as never before.” Byrd fillibustered against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 — 22 years after joining the Ku Klux Klan. And yet Clinton waved this all off as a fleeting youthful indescretion, as if Byrd stole somebody’s bike when he was 15."

Some nice revisionist history there. Clinton was our first black president so he can say stuff like that.
