As the coronavirus continues to keep many states on virus footing the Democratic National Convention has moved to hold their Presidential nomination event mostly virtual.
Day 2’s theme according to Demconvention.com is “Leadership Matters.”
The theme of Tuesday’s program is “Leadership Matters.” A moment like now demands real leadership. A leader who has the experience and character to meet the moment. A leader who will unite us, tell us the truth, take responsibility, listen to experts and be an example for the nation. Strong people and strong countries rise up during crises, don’t shy away from what is tough, and lead with competence. With Joe Biden as our president, we will restore honesty and integrity to our government, and stake out a renewed leadership role in the world. And we will create more justice, more fairness and more equality for all.Demconvention.com. 08/18/2020.
