Klobuchar recalled Biden watching a late-night speech on the Senate floor that she thought no one was watching, and then calling her to discuss them.

Buttigieg, the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor, said that before an event, Biden told him about a personal tragedy that a Buttigieg ally faced — one that “somehow Joe knew about” but Buttigieg did not.

“The magic of Joe Biden is that everything he does becomes the new reasonable,” Yang said of Biden’s policy positions. “Everyone’s going to follow his lead.”

“This is clearly the most important election in the modern history of this country. In Joe Biden, you have a human being who is empathetic, who is honest, who is decent. And at this particular moment in American history, my God, that is something this country absolutely needs,” Sanders said.
