I’m not asking about specific policy decisions or political agendas.
What do you hope Biden can do to restore and heal divisions in the country?
It’s a given that he’ll rescind some of the prior administration’s Executive Orders. That happens with every new President.
Can Biden still use his old friends in Congress to restore some degree of trust and get people from both parties talking to each other again?
I certainly hope the unprofessional and crude public statements will end. Civility is so important and political differences don’t have to become personal attacks.
I see Biden filling a similar role as Gerald Ford. The country was badly divided after Vietnam and Watergate. Ford provided a calm and steady hand in the Presidency. He didn’t try to pursue an ambitious agenda. The country needed time to quietly reflect, heal, and recover.
If Biden can do something similar that will be quite a legacy for a single term President.
What are your hopes for a Biden Presidency?
