[Ed. – Said like a truer hater of democracy.]
As one of the many progressives who was dismissive about Joe Biden and his chances of being elected president in 2020, I’m glad to report that I could not have been more wrong.
Defeating President Donald Trump at the polls (and then 50 times in court) was an imperative to save our democracy. It’s is so shaky at this point that we’re about three swing state Republican governors and a Republican House away from this president being able to easily steal an election he lost by dozens of electoral votes and 7 million real votes. But I want to believe that Biden will be able to achieve far more than just detoxing our body politic from Trump while minimizing the unpardonable harm that this wannabe dictator and his GOP co-conspirators did to this country.
Having any president who is actually opposed to spreading COVID-19 is an instant upgrade.
