Every time I see Biden with Harris I'm reminded what a good man he is

A lesser man like the former guy would’ve shunned Harris for that embarrassing moment in the debate.

Joe Biden did the opposite.

He had a wide field to choose from.

His choice set an example of decency for the world.

I love him for that.

1. I agree with you

I got to meet Joe twice in person at fundraisers back in 2019 before the COVID restrictions. Joe is a good man.

18. That's exactly right

I know Joe has had a few shots at the Presidency, but this time around, from the whole field of candidates, he was the ONE who could beat Trump by being his polar opposite. The steady, experienced hand vs. the dilletantes and know-nothings.

5. He is confident enough not to be intimidated by a strong woman. That in itself speaks

wonders for him. He respects both women and intelligence.

9. Confident enough to team with someone who had challenged him...

unlike TFG, who was way too insecure to associate with anyone other than sycophants. And we certainly saw what kind of swamp-dwellers he ended up with.

Quite a contrast to a "Team of Rivals" as Doris Kearns Goodwin wrote of Lincoln's cabinet.

6. I'm really glad he made it this time, and he chose most wisely.

Both of our leaders complement each other in ways which will never be matched by the other side.

7. It also reminds me what a good woman SHE is. And how secure Biden is in

fully acknowledging this in a woman of color.

10. lot of bullshit about nothing

...if you watched the two friends afterward, it wasn't the outrage people made it out to be.

Joe Biden acknowledged her broader point and moved on, but some people twisted it into something horrible and unforgiving. It's just weird, and they would have just buried Kamala Harris for what was a legitimate point, by belaboring the worst interpretation of what she said in the debate.

Let it go. It didn't take 'decency' to pick the person MOST Democrats polled said they wanted as Vice President.

16. I don't think it was a legitimate point ...

... not in the way Harris used it, especially with the ready-made T-shirts. She went down in my estimation after that stunt.

17. I appreciated her raising it

...it resonated with me.

With Joe Biden, too...

"Biden apologizes for remarks on segregationists.."
https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2020-election/biden-invoking-obama-s-picking-him-vice-president-defend-record-n1027096

...he acknowledged the “misstep” weeks ago at a Democratic fundraiser when he noted he had to work alongside segregationists when he first joined the Senate, but did so with “civility.”

“Now was I wrong a few weeks ago, to somehow give the impression to people that I was praising those men who I successfully opposed, time and again? Yes, I was,” he said. "I regret it and I am sorry for any of the pain or misconception that may have caused anybody.”

That's pretty decent.

11. Also, it was said that when they were vetting for VP he liked it that she stood

by what she said in the debates.

13. He shares the spotlight with her too

He doesn't stick her in an office somewhere out of sight like Trump did with Pence.
