Here's the live stream of night 2 of the DNC.
Reuters reports from the virtual Democratic National Convention tonight:
The convention's second night, under the theme "Leadership Matters," aimed to make the case that Biden would represent a return to normalcy after the "chaos" of Republican President Donald Trump's administration, as Clinton put it.
"At a time like this, the Oval Office should be a command center," he said in a prerecorded video. "Instead, it's a storm center. There's only chaos. Just one thing never changes – his determination to deny responsibility and shift the blame."

Biden is nominated 32 years after first trying, which has to be a first in American history
