A double take on tonight's festivities that dominate political chatter with only typical push back and without any sense of humor about the best 2nd best infomercial we've ever seen . . .
PREZ BUBBA RETURNS!!!
WASHINGTON -- Former President Bill Clinton laid out a stark choice Tuesday night for voters during the second night of the virtual Democratic National Convention: Either elect a "go-to-work president" in Democrat Joe Biden or reelect incumbent Donald Trump, who would use a second term to "blame, bully and belittle."
AOC Offers Counterpoint
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez only got a minute to speak at the Democratic National Convention Tuesday night but she made it count as a warning that Joe Biden not ignore the party's far-left wing, nominating socialist Bernie Sanders and making no mention of the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
Second Lady Level Up?!?
Ever since the dawn of the #MeToo era, Democrats have had a hard time figuring out with what to do about Bill Clinton. In the midterm elections, there was a reluctance to deploy him, as the party sought to avoid a rehashing of his sexual transgressions - and anything that might blur the party's contrast with Trump.
AOC Hot Minute Mess
Firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., called out "racial injustice, colonization, misogyny" as she helped nominate progressive Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT., to be the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee. While former Vice President Joe Biden was assured to win the nomination vote, Sanders did earn delegates during the primary and was formally nominated during the Democratic National Convention proceedings.
Virtual Reality Begins
Former Vice President Joe Biden officially became the Democratic Party's 2020 presidential nominee Tuesday night after an unconventional roll call vote of party delegates conducted virtually from landmarks across the country. Once he amassed the votes, a camera appeared on Biden from Delaware, where he celebrated the moment with wife, Jill, and bundles of red, white and blue balloons as the family popped streamers.
The first night of the 2020 Democratic National Convention was about highlighting ordinary Americans, and the second night was about putting the spotlight on its leaders - the figures who dominated the party in decades prior and those who hope to take the reins in the decades ahead.
Former Boss Shares The Love
Former President Obama congratulated on being formally nominated as the Democratic Party's 2020 presidential nominee. "Congrats, Joe. I'm proud of you," Obama tweeted Tuesday night. Congrats, Joe. I'm proud of you. https://t.co/YVyctn5o3N - (@BarackObama) August 19, 2020 Biden, who served as Obama's vice president for eight years, officially clinched the nomination on Tuesday after delegates formally cast their votes.
