Convention Spotlight: How Did Joe Biden Do?
Vice President Joe Biden did something tonight that is very difficult – he ended well.
Now it is almost mandatory for a convention speaker to close with a loud, passionate, and rousing call to action. What actually made Biden’s ending stand out was what came right before this. He lowered his voice considerably, as he spoke softly and movingly about the soldiers who gave up their lives fighting in the the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
It was this quiet moment which made the most impact and allowed the audience to be swept up in the rousing ending that followed.
