Surprise! Joe Biden is a moderate institutionalist!

Liberals are not happy with Joe Biden.

See, martedì, Biden announced a series of senior staff hires for his incoming administration that included lobbyist Steve Ricchetti and Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana.
If Joe Biden continues making corporate-friendly appointments to his White House, rischierà di rompere rapidamente la buona volontà guadagnata con fatica che la sua squadra ha costruito con i progressisti per sconfiggere Donald Trump,” Justice Democrats executive director Alexandra Rojas said in a statement. “A Biden administration dominated by corporate-friendly insiders like Steve Ricchetti and Cedric Richmond will not help the President-elect usher in the most progressive Democratic administration in generations.
Ecco il punto, anche se: Che cosa, Esattamente, did the left expect here?
    Biden spent more than three decades in the Senate before ascending to the vice presidency. During all of that time, he cast himself as a moderate driven by pragmatism and deal-making.
    In his just-completed presidential campaign, Biden repeatedly opposed liberal policy proposals likeMedicare for All” e il “Green New Deal.

    And amid attacks from President Donald Trump that Biden was beholden to socialist ideas and leaders within his party, he forcefully reminded voters quella “I beat the socialist. That’s how I got elected. That’s how I got the nomination. Do I look like a socialist? Look at my careermy whole career. I am not a socialist.
    Given all of that (Biden’s decades of public service and everything he said in the course of the campaign) why would liberals believe that Biden would bend to their desires when it came to his senior staff? Or to his Cabinet picks? (Ahem, Elizabeth Warren, ahem).
    Biden told everyonethe left includedexactly what sort of president he would be. One who believed that Trump was an anomaly, that Republicans were good people who could be dealt with in a post-Trump era and that deal-making and centrist politics were the right way forward.
      He’s not going to go back on it now that he’s won the White House.
      Il punto: If liberals are upset about Ricchetti and Richmond, bene, I’ve got some bad news for them. Judging by Biden’s longtime approach to politics, there’s plenty more where that came from.
