Amazingly, it was a year ago today that Joe Biden announced his candidacy for the 2020 nomination. All of that—the announcement, the campaign, the primaries—seems like it happened a lifetime ago. That series of debates, which seemed endless at the time, ended now at a time which seems to be from another age.
But it’s only been a year. And the Biden campaign has issued a new ad to mark the occasion. It’s a solid piece of work that doesn’t just serve to remind us that the last few months haven’t been as endless as they seem … and that what’s ahead is not as hopeless as it may seem.
