When Joe Biden ran for President in 2020, the cynical response was...

...that he had spent 44 years in Washington--38 in the Senate--and supposedly nothing to show for it.

Of course, that's patently untrue. He sponsored many successful bills, sat on important committees, and served as Vice President for 8 years. That's hardly "nothing."

But even that aside, I think the most recent episode regarding the debt limit blows that cynical talking point out the water. That 44 years of experience was hardly nothing. In fact, in the end, it meant everything.

The man simply knows how to get things done in DC. Period.
