1. Biden accepts the nomination and Kamala steals the show.
The big political news of the week is the Democratic National Convention. This year, because of COVID, the party organizers held a virtual convention (never been done) where party leaders and supporters spoke to a TV screen. There were a lot of highlights culminating in former Vice President Joe Biden officially accepting the Democratic nomination for president. However, (now) Vice President candidate Kamala Harris did a fantastic job speaking about her roots, her service to the country, and supporting Joe Biden.
In fact, Kamala spent the first 5 minutes speaking about being raised by her Indian mother and the importance of family.
