In historic speech, Kamala Harris expected to train fire on Trump

The fact that the Obamas are headliners on two of the four nights of the Democratic convention speaks to the crucial role they have in helping Biden try to reassemble the coalition that propelled them into the White House and the challenge the Democratic Party has in building a new bench of other leaders who can do the same.

Following his home state of DE, which went last in his honor, Biden appeared live for the first time at a DE school, where his wife, Jill, was set to deliver the night's headline address later in the evening. "Convention rules require roll call & nominations for every candidate that passes the delegate threshold".

Though Powell had already thrown his weight behind Biden's candidacy in June - the latest in a series of Democratic candidates he has supported in recent years, among them Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton - until Tuesday he had never addressed a Democratic convention.

The camp is promoting Joe Biden as a unifier.

"Denying, distracting, and demeaning works great if you're trying to entertain and inflame".

On Monday night, former Ohio Governor John Kasich also made the case to independents and those in his party that Biden is a leader who will listen to all perspectives, without regard to partisanship.

Wednesday's speech will be Clinton's sixth to the Democratic National Convention. "He knows caregiving is hard even on the good days". Speakers are appearing live from locations across the country and in prerecorded videos. Nothing of note differing from his common diatribes against Donald Trump.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, the man who famously lied to justify George W. Bush's invasion of Iraq, was among several Republicans to endorse Biden at the convention.

Democrats formally nominated Joe Biden for president on Tuesday, vowing his election would fix a pandemic-battered America and put an end to the chaos that has defined Republican President Donald Trump's administration. It wasn't exactly clear from his speech whether those values included integrity. In their appeal to middle-of-the-road voters and frustrated Republicans the convention featured a video of the unlikely friendship between Biden and late Republican senator John McCain, narrated by his widow Cindy McCain.

Apart from big names from both sides of the aisle, this year's convention features short stories by Americans from all walks of life.

"He doesn't stop from 9 in the morning til 11 at night, so that's ridiculous", Jill Biden told NBC's Savannah Guthrie when asked if the claims had merit.

The educator from Pennsylvania delivered a personal, high-stakes prime-time testimonial about her husband, including how the personal tragedy of the death of his first wife and daughter in a 1972 auto crash has shaped him.

Jill Biden said that any attack on her husband's sharpness is unfounded. With love and understanding and with small acts of compassion.
