Former First Lady Michelle Obama pens a powerful message to Joe Biden before for his acceptance speech tonight
Joe Biden is a profoundly decent man, guided by his faith. As president, he will honor the lives and experiences of every American—because that’s what he’s always done. I can’t wait for you to see the Joe I know tonight: Someone who respects the dignity of other human beings, someone who is capable of making smart plans and managing a good team. Joe will govern as someone who’s lived a life that the rest of us can recognize—and I know he and Kamala Harris have what it takes to rescue our economy, beat back a pandemic, and lead a country.
But if we want any chance of ending the chaos and division we’ve seen so much of, each of us has to step up. We’ve got to vote early, in-person if we can. We’ve got to request our mail-in ballots and send them back immediately. We’ve got to grab our comfortable shoes, put on our masks, and be willing to stand in line all night if we have to.
Joe and Kamala will only be able to lead our country forward if we all vote like our lives depend on it. So, let’s get to it.
