1) Steven L. Isenberg, “Quit, Joe, Quit! Biden could save the midterms with a one-term pledge,” Washington Post, July 24, 2022 (8:00 a.m. EDT);
2) Bret Stephens, “Our Leaderless Free World,” New York Times, July 26, 2022;
Stephens analyses four major crises the world faces, including the crisis of democracy in many countries including the United States.
As for the U.S., Stephens writes,
The best thing Biden could do for the country is announce he won’t run for re-election — now, not after the midterms. Let his party sort out its own future. Appoint a confidence-inspiring Treasury secretary (if not Larry Summers, then Jamie Dimon). Ensure that Ukraine wins swiftly. Put fear and hesitation in the minds of dictators in Moscow, Tehran and Beijing.
Only force can stop Putin
