Former first lady Michelle Obama delivered the keynote speech for the first night of the Democratic National Convention on Monday, highlighting former Vice President Joe Biden’s experience and empathy for others.
“I know Joe. He is a profoundly decent man guided by faith. He was a terrific vice president,” Obama said. “He knows what it takes to rescue an economy, beat back a pandemic and led our country.”
