The Biden Administration: An Early Assessment

Panel Discussion: Will Past Policies and Personnel

Succeed Amidst Today’s Politics?  

By the time our three-headed panel puts each of their heads together, we will have seen the first five months of the Biden administration. How will Biden’s experience, moderate instincts, and hopes for bipartisan cooperation play out in a difficult new context? That context includes dual pandemic and economic crises, a Democratic Party weakened in the House and split between self-labeled progressives and pragmatists, and a Republican Party in thrall to an extreme and unbowed ex-President. We may ask: How well has Biden done with executive branch nominations and legislative proposals? How much has he relied on executive branch actions? What degree of success has Biden had steering foreign policy away from the direction of the last four years? Has the strengthened right-wing majority on the Supreme Court made its mark? And, have denial of reality, personal bile, and political violence gathered force or receded?
