Delivering the biggest speech of his political career on the final night of the Democratic National Convention, Biden, 77, promised to develop a more inclusive America and said the country had to choose what kind of nation it wanted to be. "If you trust me with the presidency, I will draw on the best of us, not the worst. I’ll be an ally of the light, not the darkness.
