Speaking in his first broadcast interview since the Democratic primaries, Bill Clinton conceded he made mistakes during his wife's presidential campaign, but declared to ABC News: “I am not a racist.” He said he has regrets about the campaign, but “not the ones you think"—though he refused to elaborate.
"There are things that I wish I'd urged her to do. Things I wish I'd said. Things I wish I hadn't said," said Clinton. His comments about Barack Obama's South Carolina primary victory, indicating a black man was more likely to win the state, sparked a storm of controversy, but Clinton insisted: "I never made a racist comment, and I didn't attack him personally."
