He always talks about “we the people”. He always calls forth our better selves, asking us to stand in the other person’s skin before we judge. He talks about hope, about faith in the founding principles of democracy. He loves his wife, and respects her, and calls her his best friend. He is most proud of being a father, and openly calls his daughters beautiful and accomplished and powerful young women. He honors the people around him, who have supported and had his back. He calls Joe Biden a brother. He celebrates our diversity, calling it a strength, not an occasion of fear. He says that we, as citizens, matter.
He’s an orator, spellbinding.
These eight years have gone by so fast. What a remarkable moment in history this has been.
