I think there are a lot of people who don't fully realize just how much damage Trump himself has done to the government, and how Trump and his supporters have changed the political and social atmosphere of our nation. I also get that it's tempting to think about the Obama years with great affection, and to want to "go back," but I think there's so much damage that has been done that going back just isn't possible.

What you see is what you get. We can definitely make it better, but pretending that we're something we're not isn't helpful. I get why Biden is taking this tack and he's definitely the candidate who can pull it off, and I get that he's talking to Democrats, not the entire electorate. On a bigger scale, I don't think it's realistic.
