Senator Kamala Harris formally accepted the Democratic nomination for vice president on Wednesday following a scathing speech by former President Barack Obama, who said the fate of the nation "depends entirely on the outcome of this election." On the third night of the Democratic National Convention, both Mr. Obama and Harris stressed the importance of voting, with Harris saying "we're all in this fight together." Harris sounded an optimistic note by highlighting her personal history and the promise of America, saying she was "so inspired by a new generation.""Make no mistake, the road ahead will not be not easy," she said. And we will act with the same faith in you that we ask you to place in us."She called Mr. Trump a "predator" in a speech that came after Mr. Obama issued his most forceful rebuke of his successor to date, saying Mr. Trump "hasn't grown into the job because he can't.""This president and those in power — those who benefit from keeping things the way they are — they are counting on your cynicism," Mr. Obama said. In addition to Clinton, powerhouse Democratic women such House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Elizabeth Warren spoke.On Thursday, the final night of the Democratic convention, Joe Biden will formally accept the Democratic nomination for president.Latest updates:Joe Biden will formally accept the Democratic nomination for president on Thursday. And to a vision cast by generations of Americans — one that Joe Biden shares," Harris continued.Harris also used her speech to contrast Biden's governing style with Mr. Trump's "failure of leadership," signaling that she may adopt the role of attack dog on the campaign trail.Harris portrayed Biden's vision for the nation and for the future as one of hope and one which embraces all, rather than the more divisive approach taken by Mr. Trump.Biden's is "a vision of our nation as a beloved community — where all are welcome, no matter what we look like, where we come from, or who we love," Harris said. We stand on their shoulders," she said.Pelosi made the case that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Mr. Trump are standing in the way of progress, particularly when it comes to access to health care."We will remember in November, when we will elect Joe Biden president," the speaker said. Across demographic groups within Democratic voters, roughly 90% want to hear from Mr. Obama.Nine in 10 Democrats rate the Obama presidency positively, including 59% who say it was "excellent."Campaign aides say Senator Kamala Harris' speech on Wednesday will deliver a vision for a more inclusive nation based on her own experiences. Kamala Harris, who is accepting the Democratic vice presidential nomination Wednesday, will call for party unity in her speech before the convention and contrast Joe Biden's governing style with Mr. Trump's "failure of leadership."She will portray Biden's vision for the nation and for the future as one of hope and one which embraces all, rather than the more divisive approach taken by Mr. Trump.Biden's is "a vision of our nation as a beloved community–where all are welcome, no matter what we look like, where we come from, or who we love," Harris will say, according to excerpts of the speech released by the Democratic National Convention Committee. Joe will be a president who turns our challenges into purpose," Harris will say.The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee has this to say about the rival who bested her: "He is who he is." In her convention speech, Hillary Clinton is taking up the party's refrain on President Trump, albeit with a twist on his original remark, "it is what it is," in response to a question about the COVID-19 death toll."I wish Donald Trump had been a better president. "America needs a president who shows the same compassion, determination, and leadership in the White House that we see in our communities."Clinton will also talk about what people who did not support her in 2016 have said to her since then."For four years, people have said to me, 'I didn't realize how dangerous he was.' 'I wish I could go back and do it over.' Or worst, 'I should have voted.' Well, this can't be another woulda coulda shoulda election," Clinton will say. But we know what he doesn't: that when women succeed, America succeeds," Pelosi will say.Jill Biden, the wife of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, talks to "CBS This Morning" about why she thinks her husband has what it takes to lead the U.S. She also reflects on school safety amid the coronavirus pandemic.When former President Obama addresses the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night from Philadelphia, he not only plans to describe working alongside his former partner, Joe Biden, but also intends to use a major national address to encourage Americans to vote. A spokeswoman says the former president plans to "talk about watching Joe's success firsthand in helping to lead America out of a dire recession and jump-start our economy, expand health care for tens of millions of Americans, and restore our standing in the world." In urging Americans to vote, Mr. Obama will "highlight the cynical moves by the current administration and the Republican Party to discourage Americans from voting," the spokeswoman said.Read more here.
