President elect Biden’s inaugural address was the first time in American history a sitting president had delivered an address to a joint session of Congress.
But it was a moment that will live on in popular memory for the many different reasons that led to Biden’s election.
First, the election was seen as a referendum on the country’s political system.
In many ways, the first year of Biden’s presidency was a referendum in which the people of the United States elected a new president, the one who promised a more progressive, more compassionate, and more just society, the Biden-Ryan ticket that the left hoped would end the wars and privatize the health care system.
It was a victory for those who felt that America’s political and economic system was broken.
Second, it was seen by many as a turning point in American politics.
Biden campaigned on a promise to create a “new America” for the country.
His supporters, in particular, were not just motivated by economic issues but also by concerns about the erosion of our social fabric.
He promised to restore social security and Medicare, create jobs, restore voting rights, and, most importantly, to end the war in Iraq and its aftermath.
Third, Biden also pledged to end mass incarceration, one of the nation’s most pernicious problems.
Fourth, Biden promised to end racism and racial injustice in the United, and in America.
In this election, African Americans, Native Americans, Latinos, and Native Hawaiians made up a majority of the population, and Biden promised a fairer and more equal society.
Finally, Biden was a strong advocate for the LGBT community.
He supported the passage of marriage equality, and he promised to fight for the legalization of same-sex marriage.
He spoke out against police violence against LGBTQ people.
He was also a leader in pushing for a national conversation about climate change.
In all of this, Biden’s message resonated across the country, particularly in the Deep South.
Biden’s inauguration was seen in the South as a moment of renewal.
The nation saw that the new president was someone who understood the needs of African Americans and Native Americans and had the temperament to be president.
President Barack Obama, for his part, had campaigned on the promise of a more inclusive and more compassionate America, and was seen, even in the early stages of his presidency, as someone who could address these concerns.
Biden’s inauguration and the subsequent election were seen as an affirmation of that vision.
The election of 2020 changed the politics of the country and the way people view the presidency, the nation, and their country, in the years to come.
We are in the midst of the most consequential presidential election in American political history, and that means that the 2020 presidential election will be remembered as the year the country changed.
It will be seen as the election that showed that a President Biden, and not a Vice President Biden could be the president that would heal the country from the deepest wounds, that would restore America to its rightful place in the world, and the one that would bring America together again.

They faced an existential crisis that could not be resolved by a Republican Congress, and a Democratic President.
In fact, as much as Biden and his party campaigned on an aggressive conservative agenda, they failed to win enough seats in the House to pass it, and many of those who voted against it faced political consequences for voting for it.
With a new President and a new Congress, the Democrats found themselves in the position of being in a minority in the U.S. House.
In the House, they had to navigate the challenges of being the majority party in a divided House.
While they were able to hold the majority for a brief period of time, they found themselves under increasing pressure from the right wing to try to reach a compromise.
On the heels of the 2016 election, the Republican Party started to turn toward the extreme right.
When President Trump came to power in January of 2021, it seemed that the Republican House was in deep trouble.
The House was split between Republicans and Democrats, with Republicans in the majority and Democrats on the brink of an irrevocable minority.
Republicans had a lot of power in the house, as they had a number of different pieces of legislation that would have passed in the next two years.
The Republican Party had a very powerful majority in the Senate, and they had the votes to pass many of the legislation that the Trump administration wanted.
The House Republicans also controlled the Whitehouse, and there were plenty of Republican members who were willing to put their political careers on the line
