… [H]is larger task for the evening was to find the words to help push Joe Biden over the finish line. Alas, his former veep is proving to be a heavy lift and even Obama has never been able to transfer his special sauce to others when he is not on the ballot.
Wednesday night was no exception and I don’t believe he moved the needle in the race for the White House. As a result, Day 3 of the convention fell far short of the high expectations, raising the question of whether Dems will get any bump out of the virtual exercise.
