You'd think it was a second coming of MLK the way they’re over-egging that speech.

Still, feels a genuine relief to have some kind of normality restored, albeit it’s an unsatisfactory normality and however brief the respite might be.

It's aggravating to see such a mediocrity being heralded as some kind of savior when he's one of the main architects of many of the problems that led to Trump in the first place. Things will improve in some areas and some of the more egregious executive orders will be rolled back but they're also going to get worse in some places.

Foreign policy will be one - Trump's laziness and poor attention span had the unintended consequence of limiting the harm inflicted on the world by the US empire, at least in the sense no additional countries were bombed. Biden recognises Guaido as Venezeula's president so I'd expect Latin American coup no. 57 to happen under his watch and reckon they'll be some sort of military intervention in Iran.

Healthcare is another. Biden's already rolling back the campaign promise of a public option in favour of more subsidies for insurance companies. This just means more people will have insurance plans they can't actually afford to use. Here in New York the cheapest ACA plan is c.$400 a month with an $8000 deductible. Worse than useless. Biden's completely and utterly in the pocket of the health insurance ghouls so I expect that to get even worse under his watch.

Better than Trump, obviously, but I'm under no illusions over what another four years of milquetoast centrism will bring.
