“What I quickly came to admire about him is his resilience, born of too much struggle; his empathy, born of too much grief,” Obama said. “Joe’s a man who learned — early on — to treat every person he meets with respect and dignity, living by the words his parents taught him: ‘No one’s better than you, Joe, but you’re better than nobody.'”
Obama also took time during the speech to shed light on why Kamala Harris is the perfect candidate for vice president.
“He’s chosen an ideal partner who’s more than prepared for the job, someone who knows what it’s like to overcome barriers and who’s made a career fighting to help others live out their own American dream,” he said.
Obama ended his gut-wrenching speech telling the American people that there is only one choice on Election Day.
“Any chance of success depends entirely on the outcome of this election,” he concluded. “This administration has shown it will tear our democracy down if that’s what it takes to win, so we have to get busy building it up by pouring all our effort into these 76 days and by voting like never before for Joe and Kamala.”
