Points
  • Joe Biden will deliver his first speech to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday evening and will pass the 100-day mark of his presidency two days later.
  • Which means his presidency is just getting started.
  • But that hasn't kept pundits from pronouncing on its place in history, with the emerging consensus being that the Biden administration is shaping up to be transformational.
  • That's certainly the view of Jonathan Chait, who just published an article in New York that claims Biden's first hundred days have already "reshaped America.
  • I made my own contribution to the genre of prematurely sweeping takes with a column earlier this month proposing that Biden had the potential to bring the post-Reagan era of American politics to an end with a progressive agenda more ambitious than any we'd seen since the New Deal nearly 90 years in the past.
