America has voted Democrat Joe Biden as its 46th president, turning at a time of national crisis to a man whose character was produced by aching personal tragedy and who is pledging to reestablish quiet and truth after Donald Trump's exhausting and manic single term. In a victory discourse Saturday night in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, Biden said he was lowered by the trust America had set in him and contacted those Americans who didn't decide in favor of him. "I understand the disappointment tonight. I've lost two or three times myself. Yet, presently, how about we give each other a possibility," Biden said. "This is the time to recuperate in America."
