"Prior to Biden’s intervention, progressives in the party had secured agreement to include the word for the first time in the Democratic platform.
Ultimately, the section on Israel included more robust language defending the rights of the Palestinians to a state. It also condemned the boycott Israel movement.
The platform included a number of victories for progressives on domestic issues, including closing the wage gap and climate change. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, whom Biden, the former vice president, defeated in the primaries, is working closely with Biden to shape party policies." Times of Israel

I know that from personal observation of him at a range of about six feet. pl
