Perhaps none of this would ever come to pass and a reelected Biden would make it to the finish line with ease, proving that 85 is the new 75. It’s also true that anything could happen to anyone of any age — even a 45-year-old president could fall ill. But the longer Biden serves, the higher the risks. And for what? Biden isn’t uniquely gifted, ideologically compelling, irresistibly likable, or very good at being president. His claim to be the only Democrat who can beat Donald Trump in 2024 looks more attenuated by the day.
In short, there’s no good reason for Biden not to make the best call of his presidency and prepare for retirement.
