Bill Clinton: “The Oval Office Should Be A Command Center. Instead, It’s A Storm Center…


Joe Biden officially became the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee Tuesday night after a roll call of the state delegations and speeches by former President Bill Clinton and others at the second night of the all-virtual Democratic National Convention.

Biden will accept the nomination with a speech Thursday in Wilmington, Delaware, but the formal party business of his nomination was taken care of Tuesday as representatives of all 57 states and territories sounded off to announce their votes in short videos, often in front of iconic backdrops.

He appeared briefly after the roll call with his wife and grandchildren, who threw streamers behind him. It probably wasn’t how Biden, who has been in the politics for five decades and planned presidential runs in almost every one of them, imagined accepting his party’s nomination.

Meanwhile, Clinton ripped President Donald Trump’s handling of the job he once held.

Clinton said “COVID hit us much harder than it had to” because Trump ignored the advice of experts and spends all day “zapping people on social media” instead of trying to help them.

“At a time like this, the Oval Office should be a command center. Instead, it’s a storm center. There’s only chaos,” Clinton said. “Just one thing never changes — his determination to deny responsibility and shift the blame. The buck never stops there.”

Clinton, by contrast, said Biden would be “a go-to-work president.”

“A down-to-earth, get-the-job-done guy. A man with a mission: to take responsibility, not shift the blame; concentrate, not distract; unite, not divide. Our choice is Joe Biden,” Clinton said. “You know what Donald Trump will do with four more years: blame, bully and belittle. And you know what Joe Biden will do: build back better.”

The two-hour program opened with an unusual keynote address.
