Sure, it is a actually wonderful progress that now we have made, Judy.
Or in case you really give it some thought this manner, simply how dynamic this Democratic main has been, six weeks in the past, we had been all truthfully speaking about that we is likely to be taking a look at contested conference, that no candidate was going to have the ability to put collectively a plurality of the delegates.
And now right here we’re, early April, with the race primarily over. Nicely, it’s over, and Joe Biden wrapping up the nomination.
Look, I believe there was one thing actually vital that occurred on this endorsement, which, by the best way, was digital, like every little thing nowadays. This was performed over video, with the 2 of them interacting that means.
Joe Biden was very diplomatic, he was very gracious, he was very deferential to Bernie Sanders, however there was additionally a marked change in tone and magnificence and even focus that I believed was vital.
Should you bear in mind, Judy, when the race was actually sizzling and heavy, once we had been in late February, early March, Joe Biden saying, we do not have a time for a revolution, we simply want to determine the right here and now, there was actually a way that Joe Biden was campaigning as a let’s return again to regular, vs. the Bernie Sanders let’s have a revolution and make massive structural change.
Nicely, at present, Joe Biden, you already know, we won’t simply return to enterprise as traditional, principally acknowledging not solely that the world has modified an incredible deal since these two had been in a really aggressive race, with the coronavirus and the injury that it is performed to the well being and financial system of this nation, but in addition actually giving a nod to Bernie Sanders and his message about massive structural change.
I imply, the attention-grabbing piece of all of this, Judy, to me, is that we had a marketing campaign the place this debate about making massive structural change or form of staying the course, staying in the established order, had been the 2 poles, and now it isn’t the candidates which have actually upended life as we all know it or made massive structural change.
It is this coronavirus that is really performed it, and the concept that we will return to — quote, unquote — “regular” appears actually unlikely.
