“I give him an A and I’m a hard grader,” said former New York senator and secretary of state Hillary Clinton on CNN when asked to give an overall grade for the first hundred days in office of President Joe Biden.
“I give him A, both on effort because he’s done a couple of things so well. He has once again embodied and modeled what a president should act like in the Oval Office, in the White House, in the world at large, with dignity, with purposefulness, with care for what he says and how he treats people and his attention to detail and the team that he has surrounded himself with, who are experienced at how you make the federal government work, has produced a just a tremendous amount of positive action to not just undo the past four years, but really begin again to get the government working in the right way.”
“And then the passage of the American rescue plan to get money into the pockets of Americans who are still suffering economically is absolutely the right thing to do. And it got done. He was single minded about it. And finally, man, getting two hundred and twenty million shots into arms, getting the vaccines out there, getting that supply chain fixed, using the federal government through FEMA, the National Guard to be part of the team and states and localities just shows what competent government looks like, which is why he has such high approval ratings across the board. Of course, he has high approval ratings from Democrats, but even among independents and Republicans, people don’t have to worry all the time. They don’t have to hold their breath when when they see their president on television, they don’t have to shake their head and wonder that a president’s going to tell them to drink bleach. I mean, we now have a mature, experienced president, and thank goodness we do.”
