What should Sen. Trent Lott do about the controversial comments on segregation he made last week?
Asked at Community Mercantile, 901 Iowa on December 14, 2002
“I think he said that he was sorry. People don’t always say the right thing when they should, but I think that he’s a good senator.”
“He’s apologized several times. I think that’s about all he can do. I think it’s out of his hands at this point.”
“I think he should apologize like he’s been doing and let it go. I don’t think he meant anything bad by it. He was just having fun.”
“Given the remarks, the appropriate thing to do would be to apologize to the people he may have offended.”
