Joe Biden 1988 TV Ad
Joe Biden for President
Narrator:The White House isn't the place to learn how to deal with
international crisis, the balance of power, war and peace, and the
economic future of the next generation. A President has got to know
the territory, but that's not enough. To win the White House, the Democratic
nominee had better have a crystal clear vision of what the Democratic Party
stands for. Of what the dream is and how we keep it alive.
Joe Biden sees the Presidency as a pulpit from which America sets an
example for the world. He believes that developing nations once saw America
as more than a place; They saw us as an idea; A goal to reach for.
He knows that they've lost confidence in us; that they see us losing our way;
our resolve; our ideals. Joe Biden thinks it's time to remind the world
of what America stands for. Freedom. Equality. Justice. Opportunity.
He thinks it's time to put courage over compromise. Time to express
America's outrage once again towards repression, brutality, violence,
the abuse of human dignity around the world,
and if the sparks fly, so be it...
