At tonight’s 2020 Democratic debate, Joe Biden was asked about one of the central themes of his campaign, that he would bring a sense of normalcy back to the country after President Donald Trump.
It’s been a point Biden has been hammering home since he announced, that President Donald Trump is an aberration and that he would bring back a steady hand to the levers of government. That a response to Trump doesn’t require a hard-shift left.
But perhaps sensing that answer wouldn’t resonate, Biden proposed a new plan.
We need to move “beyond normal.”

Biden’s answer on Republicans returning to normal after Trump completely changed.— Matt Fuller (@MEPFuller) December 20, 2019
He can say that was his answer all along, but it wasn’t. He’s long said Trump is an aberration, that with Trump gone, things’ll change.
Maybe he’s finally realized, or maybe his calculus changed.
Biden was specifically asked about his stance that after Trump left office, congressional Republicans would come to their senses and work with him. But perhaps the last week—and the GOP’s show of slavish devotion to Trump during impeachment—may have changed that.
Although given everything that’s happened while he’s been running, Biden 2020: Beyond Normal, isn’t all that inaccurate.
