After seeing the presidency up close for eight years, the most important thing I’ve learned about the job is this: How a president focuses their time and energy in office is a direct reflection of the life they lived before entering the White House. A president’s policies are a direct reflection of their values.
I know Joe. He’s a good man who understands the struggles of everyday folks.
When he was a kid, his dad lost his job, and their family had to move to find work. As a young man, he quit his job at a law firm to serve as a public defender, protecting the rights of those who couldn’t defend themselves. Joe continued to serve this country even in the face of unimaginable tragedy, losing his wife and baby daughter—and later in his life, his eldest son. He relied on his deep faith to carry him through, never growing cynical, and always willing to see the humanity in us all.
Joe has lived his life guided by values and principles that mirror ones that most Americans can recognize. It is that spirit and determination that will make Joe the kind of president we need right now. One who will continue to put the needs of the country before his own, who will get our economy back on track, and will ensure that all families can get back on their feet.
Let's go elect Joe Biden as our next president.
Some of us really are getting old. #BidenHarris2020
