Say it ain’t so, Joe

Joanne Jacobs:

“What kind of president does Joe Biden want to be?” ask Chad Aldeman and Alex Spurrier of Bellwether Education Partners. Will he fight for the underdogs or for the teachers’ unions?

The Democratic Party’s platform, based on a Biden-Sanders “unity” task force’s recommendations, “steer Biden away from the coalition of Black and low-income voters who brought him the nomination,” write Aldeman and Spurrier. “Maybe this shouldn’t come as a surprise — given that two of the eight members of the task force are the heads of the two major teachers unions.”
