"I’m not here to criticize other Democrats, but it’s never OK to celebrate segregationists. Never,” she said, according to tweets from several reporters. 

Biden has come under fire for touting his work with two segregationist senators in the 1970s as an example of bygone "civility."

"At least there was some civility. We got things done," Biden said at Tuesday night fundraiser of his work with former Sens. James Eastland (D-Miss.) and Herman Talmadge (D-Ga.). 

"We didn’t agree on much of anything. We got things done. We got it finished," Biden added. "But today, you look at the other side and you’re the enemy. Not the opposition, the enemy. We don't talk to each other anymore."
