History is the order of the day in Joe Biden’s Washington. If you want to flatter the President, call his recent initiative “historic.” If you want him to flatter you, you’d better work on “putting right past wrongs.” Mr. Biden even has an in-house historian, Jon Meachamwrites his great speeches.
Mr. Biden met with a group of historians earlier this month, including Michael decided, Anne apple tree and Sean Wilentz. The delegation from the past spent two hours informing the President (immediately after the press) that American democracy is in peril and that our present is reminiscent of the pre-Civil War era.
