That's because Joe Biden has room in his heart for more than just himself.

Then came Melania Trump in all her Birkin handbag, pussy-bow Gucci blouse glory.

It will also give her the opportunity to outline her biography as a child of immigrants from India and Jamaica who as a district attorney, state attorney general, US senator and now vice-presidential candidate shattered gender and racial barriers. Fabulous, maybe, but possibly not an obvious opinion poll victor, especially during a pandemic and economic crisis.

"Joe Biden will be a president we will all be proud to salute", he said during a video message. Obama started off that way but as she realised her fashion potential, her looks became more and more daring by the year.

The DNC worked against itself throughout the two and a half hour digitized convention, drowning the few small chances for enthusiasm it generated by heaping tragedy, memories, and terminal illness on top of attempts to define the candidate positively, finally slumping to the finish line with Jill smiling tightly beside her husband.

Throughout the evening, Democratic leaders contrasted Biden's long experience with what they described as Trump's deadly mishandling of the coronavirus outbreak and his willingness to corrupt democratic institutions.

"Thank you all. It means the world to me and my family, and I'll see you on Thursday", Biden said from the DE school where his wife, Jill, delivered her speech Tuesday night.

Biden's running mate, California Sen.

"America faces a triple threat: a public health catastrophe, and economic collapse and a reckoning with racial justice and inequality", Abrams said.

We welcome everyone to our "Breaking with Convention" series, as we continue to cover the Democratic National Convention underway virtually this week. "That's just who he is".

Statistics will count for nothing when we face Bayern - Lyon coach
They have scored 39 goals in nine European games, including a 7-2 drubbing of Tottenham and a 6-0 romp at Red Star Belgrade. The thrashing of Barcelona now counts for "nothing".

Another notable moment was the message of Jacquelyn Brittany, the security guard who blurted "I love you" to Biden in a video that went viral previous year. Some on the left complained that Republicans like former Ohio Governor John Kasich, who is backing Biden, a moderate Democrat, over Trump, were given more air time than the party's own progressive wing. Trump clashed with McCain, who was the Republican nominee for president in 2008, and the president criticized McCain even after his 2018 death.

Biden was scheduled to give his acceptance speech on Thursday.

General Colin Powell, who was secretary of state in George W. Bush's administration, went further and explicitly endorsed the former vice president.

Without the cheering crowds at the in-person gathering originally planned for Milwaukee, Wisconsin, TV viewership on Monday was down from 2016.

Biden's vice-presidential pick, Senator Kamala Harris, will headline Wednesday night's program along with Obama.

A jubilant Biden gave a 10-second acceptance speech to the tune of "Celebration" by Kool & The Gang, standing alongside his wife Jill.

Mr Trump trails Mr Biden in opinion polls ahead of November's election.

The Republican National Convention, also largely virtual, takes place next week.

Delivering such an obviously political speech from the White House will stir substantial controversy, as presidents are required to separate their campaigning from taxpayer-funded governing.
