If the episode of collective insanity between Election Day and Inauguration Day was one of the sorriest and scariest short stories in American history, the opening scenes of Chapter One in President Joe Biden Story are remarkably impressive and reassuring. It seems like many Democrats and anti-Trumpers are still slogging through a kind of postpartum depression, understandably. It’s hard to let your guard down and muster civic optimism after four years of Donald Trump. But try.

Joe Biden and his team have delivered on a pitch-perfect, well-orchestrated and stunningly substantive opening act. We are long out of the habit of giving presidents trust or high marks, but the guy deserves some big cheers right now.

Biden is not, in fact, getting the dazzling high honeymoon approval numbers that Barack Obama racked up in the early weeks of 2009. That’s not surprising. Obama took office facing one colossal crisis, the financial meltdown. And as the first Black president, he had history-making admiration.
