“Leaders of the Democratic Party are now debating whether to ask U.S. President Joe Biden not to run again based on his performance in Thursday night’s debate with Donald Trump. They are correct in one respect. Asking him is preferable to forcing his exit, if that is what the party seeks. Yet they can also take a cue from Jill Biden. Last year, the first lady hinted that her husband has options other than being president. ‘It’s Joe’s decision,’ she told CNN. ‘And we support whatever he wants to do. If he’s in, we’re there.’ The idea of not setting limits on Mr. Biden’s future reminds us of the late actor Glenda Jackson.” (06/28/24)
