My brother is a moderate who loves Charlie Baker and originally liked Hickenlooper in the primary. I’m a progressive who gave money to Warren and voted for Bernie. We both kept texting each other fire emojis throughout the speech and FaceTimed about it this morning. A man who wanted no signs on his house has now ordered a batch of Biden/Harris signs for his front yard and bumper stickers for his truck. He’s also become a political donor for the first time in his life. This is in a neighborhood where Trump signs and Blue Lives Matter flags are the norm.
This is because the themes of light and darkness resonated with us, hard core Star Wars fans and men of faith, who in our own way, see real evil at work in our country and want it stopped in its tracks. Biden made the case for science, reason, and faith to come together to bring us out of the four crises of Covid, climate, racism, and economic catastrophe. He will do this while restoring our tarnished flag at home and abroad. As Kamala Harris asked in her great speech, what did you do? It’s time for us to act.
Also you want a guy quoting Seamus Heaney or a guy paying off Stormy Daniels? No contest.
