A man who could bring the country and the world together in a unifying speech, no divisive rhetoric or fears of conspiracies, one of the greatest of all time! Thank God for president Biden that can continue bringing this nation back together after the horrible 4 years we had to endure

He had his good sides and his bad sides, made some good decisions and some pretty bad ones. I don't care if you love him or hate him - you can't tell me that this man doesn't have one HELL of a stage presence, more charisma than he knows what to do with, and could give one HELL of a speech!
