“American History Isn’t a Fairy Tale”

“With a guaranteed happy ending.”

Words spoken by Joe Biden this morning in Philadelphia. This is the way a real president would speak to a troubled nation.

Look, the presidency is a big job. Nobody will get everything right. And I wonโ€™t either.

But I promise you this. I wonโ€™t traffic in fear and division. I wonโ€™t fan the flames of hate. I will seek to heal the racial wounds that have long plagued this country โ€“ not use them for political gain.

Iโ€™ll do my job and I will take responsibility. I wonโ€™t blame others. Iโ€™ll never forget, I promise you, that this job isnโ€™t about me. Itโ€™s about you. Itโ€™s about us.
