Former President Barack Obama Endorses Joe Biden [VIDEO]

Former President Barack Obama endorsed Joe Biden Tuesday (April 14th). He made the announcement via an 11-minute video.

“If there’s one thing we’ve learned as a country from moments of great crisis, it’s that the spirit of looking out for one another can’t be restricted to our homes, or our workplaces, or our neighborhoods, or our houses of worship. It also has to be reflected in our national government. The kind of leadership that’s guided by knowledge and experience, honesty and humility, empathy and grace — that kind of leadership doesn’t just belong in our state capitols and mayors offices. It belongs in the White House.”

He continues,

“And that’s why I’m so proud to endorse Joe Biden for President of the United States.”

See the video below.

The endorsement reunites the former running mates and positions Obama. The former president kept a low public profile throughout much of the Democratic nomination fight.
