He walked right into it. Harris was a prosecutor for many years and, whatever else she may be, I think she was a very good lawyer and an excellent litigator. She led him and she did it in a way that was really skillful and didn't initially come off as an attack. And, Biden just stepped in it. It was really awesome. You can probably find the clip on youtube. I'm sure it's been posted many places.
The best part was when Biden said he wasn't against bussing, he was against the federal governement telling states and local communities who didn't want to bus that they had to for the purpose of racial integration - which was the point. Those are not his exact words but it's what he said. And, as soon as he said it he realized he said it and went into how he pushed for voting rights, etc.
And, Larry David did fine. He made the same points he always makes. He's consistent.
Btw, based on the clips from night 1 I am definetely hoping to see more of Tulsi Gabbard. Yowza!
