Chicago, I.L. – After delaying for months, former President Barack Obama has finally endorsed Joe Biden. He gave the endorsement on a video released on Tuesday. This comes the day after Bernie Sanders offered his endorsement of Biden.
Many had expected Obama to endorse Biden, but some have suggested that Obama was working behind the scenes against Biden. Yet, in the end, Biden gets the endorsement. For Obama, it’s a safe move at this point. But a necessary move given that his legacy is on the line.
Joe Biden has ran on that legacy up until this point. Amid attacks from his competition, he fiercely defended his record as part of the Obama administration. Obama highlights that in his statements.
He talks about Biden’s work in the past as part of the H1N1 response and various liberal causes. Recently, Biden has made several moves to appeal to the Sanders supporters, while also attempting to appear moderate for Democrats. In the end, Joe Biden is not a moderate, but simply another pandering Democrat.
Obama’s endorsement is an attempt to consolidate Democrats behind Biden as the campaigns start moving toward the general election. Most of the country is still focused on the coronavirus pandemic and have yet to start focusing on November.
