Sen. Lindsey Graham, RS.C., is friends with Democratic President Joe Biden, but after the debate on Thursday, he was very impressed by the woman who put the former vice-president on the hot spot: Senator Kamala Harris, D-Calif.
Harris urged Biden, his ability to work with segregationists in Congress and denounce his integration record, and caused the former vice president to trip.

At a crucial moment on Thursday, Harris called Biden's record, not just how he spoke about the segregationist James Eastland and Herman Talmadge, but how he also worked with them.
"It hurt to hear you talk about the reputation of two US Senators who have built their reputation and careers on racial segregation in this country," Harris said. "And it was not just that, you also worked with them to stop bus driving." Harris continued to benefit from a bus program that helped integrate public schools.

Harris then proceeded to grill Biden for his refusal of state-mandated buses. While Biden had answers to their questions, Harris was on the defensive.
] Graham gushed about Harris' abilities, but warned that it's too early to take Biden out of the race.
"I think you will underestimate Joe Biden at your own risk," he said.
