    Looking back at the footage of today I feel like it was a big test for Biden. Cold weather, no loo breaks, steep stairs...

    Would never have been Bernie! We'd still have Trump.

    He absolutely wouldn't have been allowed to get to this point, sadly :( He's better off in his mittens, and being in charge of the Senate budget committee is a pretty big deal which could potentially give him a decent amount of leverage when it comes to policy.

    Kamala already laughing her head off in the chair - she’s forced to talk about her own resignation in the third person.

    Obviously it was a very smooth ride, but the first press briefing was such a breath of fresh air after years of defensive crap from Kayleigh McEnany, Sarah Huckabee Sanders etc.

    Huge understatement. It feels so good to be looking at NORMAL PEOPLE again. I can't believe that's become a luxury.
