Now Is the Time for Biden’s Age to Be an Asset

From a New York Times column by Lydia Polgreen headlined “Now Is the Moment for Biden’s Age to Be an Asset”:

President Biden’s experience certainly should have prepared him for this moment of crisis in Israel and Palestine. He launched his national political career with a run for the Senate in 1972 that turned on his pledge to fight the Nixon administration’s escalation of the Vietnam War. He opposed that war less on moral grounds than on pragmatic ones: that the war was futile and needlessly drained American resources and power.
