Don’t you mean Joe? No. His candidacy seems to be completely about his son Beau. Who served. Who tragically died of horrible cancer. In tonight’s Dem convention finale we heard Beau’s name even more than Trump’s. Which we heard more than Joe’s.
And for 4 nights. Joe’s empathy. Is this what motivates 18-34 year olds to vote? Don’t think so. The whole Dem show has been a lachrymose lament. Loss. Grief. For Beau. For Covid. For Racism. Yes. This has been an extraordinarily hard time. Fine.
Biden is just plain old. Where is the new generation to lead? And what is their specific agenda for the next chapter.
