We’ve got to have the brightest minds to help solve our biggest challenges. And it’s a reminder that in this democracy, we the people recognize that this government belongs to us, and it’s up to each of us and every one of us to make it work better. We can’t just stand on the sidelines. We can’t take comfort in just being cynical. We all have a stake in government’s success, because the government is us, and we’re doing things right. When we’re tracking weather more effectively, that saves lives for folks who are in the path of a tornado.
It’s probably not a good idea to talk about the “brightest minds” while standing next to Joe Biden.
