Biden’s Speech

It’s incredibly easy to dehumanize politicians; to think of them only as an embodiment or mouthpiece for their platform or party. In that way it’s easy to dismiss them, idealize them, or make fun of them.

Moments like this – especially from a guy like Biden whom can say something so stupid, even when taking a good stance – are, in that sense, almost shocking. To hear something so real, so genuine, and so human from someone who it’s so hard to really think of in that way.

Anyway, here’s the Vice President giving one of the most touching and sincere speeches of any politician’s career.
