    The intro on Ukraine worked well enough, but boy did Associated Press -RRB- Biden move on quickly, and not to anything particularly compelling or new.As a technicalmatter, the speech felt strung together and disjointed, with cram-ins and jumpy transitions.The substance amounted to a dry list of policy points, like it was geared toward lawmakers in the room rather than people at home.He missed multiple chances to bring ideas to life with examples or audience shout-outs. The conclusion was too safe and forgettable for such a historic time. Politically speaking, while Associated Press -RRB- Biden may have avoided losing ground, Associated Press -RRB- Biden certainly didn't gain any. And that makes it a miss.
