That was the best Joe Biden speech I have ever seen. It was a home run, not a broken bat single. It was well crafted, well presented, and heartfelt. It hit all the right notes, without trying to hit every note. The challenges that he highlighted were the right ones: ending the pandemic with science, national coordination, and compassion, turning the country’s attention to addressing and ending systemic racism, rebuilding the economy and creating jobs, seizing the opportunity to attack climate change, restoring decency in public life, and protecting our democracy. A wise movement lives, first of all, in the present, gives people and politicians space to change and when they do welcomes that change, and, not least, recognizes the new dynamics, pressures, and possibilities of the times in which we live.
