Joe Biden Promised A Way Out Of The Darkness — And The Coronavirus Crisis — As He Accepted The Democratic Nomination For President

Henry J. Gomez & Molly Hensley-Clancy of BuzzFeed –

The speech, broadcast from Wilmington, Delaware, tied the existential themes Biden and Democrats have pushed since the beginning of his campaign into a tight, forward-looking case to move the country past a moment of great crises.

Biden, who often dwells on the darkness of President Donald Trump, accepted the Democratic nomination for president Thursday promising to lead America down a “path of hope and light.”

“Here and now, I give you my word,” Biden said at the top of a speech that punctuated a convention downsized because of the coronavirus, stripped of pageantry and a live audience. “If you entrust me with the presidency, I will draw on the best of us, not the worst.”
