I do not have a candidate.

Interesting point about the effectiveness of speeches, I thought. I must admit, the only ones I’ve listened to so far are Michelle Obama and President Obama, but this comment definitely applies;

This speech was also another example that we are better for a virtual convention. Applause lines and crowd interaction would have diminished this speech. It was highly direct, close-up. Though it was obviously a tightly-tailored and considered speech, this made for something more intimate and direct. Seeing crowd shots and cheer lines and all that clutter of conventioneering only would have reduced the moment.

I do not recollect telling you anything never mind ten times a day for five years.

I have said I supported Tulsi.

So based on fact checking, an alarmingly accurate speech by Biden. What was he thinking ?

They make a good point. I find there is nothing more offputting, when tuning into a convention held for the purpose of nominating your next presidential candidate, than to be greeted with a bunch of folks kitted out as though they got a day release from the mental institute for clowns. By way of comparison, the sheer sensibility displayed in this year's presentation for tv audiences has been awesome.

So no social distancing or masks last night at the White House. Are sitting Presidents allowed to do electioneering from the WH? Obviously he cares not for rules and is able to get away with whatever he wants to do, just curious.

It's another one of those 'norms' that he is ignoring, but there is no specific law against it. If I'm not mistaken I think FDR also made an acceptance speech from the WH during WW2.

Numerous violations of the Hatch Act, most noticeably by the Secretary of State.

The only thing to believe about Boiler is that he's a troll. And a piss poor one at that.
