The truth is the nation reaped what it sewed. So while I am no fan of Mr. Trump, a little more historical perspective and far less hyperventilating helps.That said, I am so far finding Mr. Biden less appealing and whereas I did not vote for Mr. Trump in 2016 - I wrote in Evan McMullen - this time I may "support," to use that word, the President. Albeit without much enthusiasm.For his part, Mr. Biden is an unremarkable figure. His views are vague and changeable. His policies, where they are known, are not especially innovative. Indeed, are timeworn and not likely well adapted to contemporary circumstances. Where original they are vague to the point of opacity, leavened by a certain pandering character.Indeed, in this he is not unlike the current occupant of the White House. Mr. Trump's policies being a mishmash of programs drawn from both sides of the aisle. Thus tax cuts - a pretty standard GOP policy - and trade protectionism - long a demand of the Democratic party. Albeit that both parties are, right now, doing intellectual handstands as they transition to new constituencies.Further, like Mr. Trump, former VP Biden is prone to mashed up language and vituperation. Thus he has called Mr. Trump a racist even as Mr. Trump has said that Mr. Biden wants to "kill God." Suffice to say, neither man really meets the high standards and dignified rhetoric that one might hope for in a presidential contender.
