When President elect Joe Biden and Vice President elect Kamala Harris took the stage tonight, those new titles alone were enough to underscore the significance of the moment. From the moment Kamala opened her speech by quoting John Lewis, to the moment Joe closed his speech with his new tagline “Spread the faith,” it was precisely the historic night we were all hoping for and needed.
– Vice President elect Kamala Harris, wearing suffragette white, opened her victory speech by quoting John Lewis.
– Joe Biden: “For America’s educators, this is a great day: You’re going to have one of your own in the White House, and Jill is going to make a great First Lady.”
– Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were on stage to the tune of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down” at one point. Fitting.
