“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 won’t either.

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

I’ll do my job and I will take responsibility. I won’t blame others. I’ll never forget, I promise you, that this job isn’t about me. It’s about you. It’s about us.
