But it also focused on another trait Rice said will make Biden a good leader: his empathy. 

“I’m proud to endorse @JoeBiden for President. Here he is comforting me on 1/4/17 just after my mother passed away,” Rice tweeted with a picture of the two hugging. “There is no one kinder, more empathetic and caring than @joebiden. He will lead America with the same deep compassion and decency.”

She also said Biden is the best chance for Democrats to defeat Trump, win the Senate and maintain the majority in the House.

“Above all, @JoeBiden is a Democrat and the strongest candidate to take on and defeat Trump. That’s why Trump is so scared of Biden. Our fate as a nation depends on beating Trump.  Nothing is more important, and now is not the time for risky bets or divisive revolutions,” she tweeted.
