The video about Joe they are playing before his speech makes some nice connections. He talks about hating the abuse of power whether it's a parent slapping a child or a President wrongly launching a war. It talks about his family, his daily commute home from DC, losing his wife and daughter. His son got up and talked about how he'd always been there for him when they were growing up, how "the whole family" married Jill.
All I can think is not what they can say about John McCain at the Repub Convention, but how much they'll have to leave out.
Joe talks about his wife leaving him "breathless and speechless." McCain offered up his wife as a piece of meat at a biker convention.
Biden (as many have all night) talked his friendship with John McCain. However, (as has happened all night) he launched into the "McSame" policies McCain wants to continue for another four years.
The energy in the hall is amazing.
