Goldberg pointed out that she grew up in the era of segregation.
“A lot of these guys voted ‘no’ on the Civil Rights Act,” she said. “Some of them were former klansmen. This is the world as it was. This is the world as it was, and that’s why LBJ had to beat up people to get them to notice us enough to give us the right to vote, OK?”
“You have to work with people you don’t like,” Goldberg added.

Biden has faced mounting criticism over the last two days after invoking former Sens. James Eastland (D-Miss.) and Herman Talmadge (D-Ga.) during a speech at a fundraiser Tuesday night.
The former Delaware senator cited his ability to work with the segregationists as an example of “civility” that no longer exists in Congress, pointing out that Eastland never called him “boy.”
