It now all appears but certain that Joe Biden will be elected the next president of the United States. The former vice should be congratulated for triumphing in the most bizarre political campaign of modern times, one in which for months at a time he all but refused to participate, trusting instead that big city turnout operations and hysterical opposition to his opponent in the suburbs would deliver him a blowout victory.
This did not happen. Biden appears to have secured exceedingly narrow margins in a handful of crucial states, just as Donald Trump did in 2016. But a win is a win.
