Looking Forward To The Biden Administration. On MLK Day, Professor Daniel Singal remembers meeting Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He then offers his expectations for the Biden administration. Singal begins by noting that Biden has assembled an incredibly impressive cabinet that will be able to hit the deck running. “If you want to accomplish a lot in your first term, these are the kind of people you want to have as your assistants,” he says. “He’s really thinking ahead. He’s constructing a government with remarkable skill that we haven’t seen in years.”
Asked to list the new administration’s priorities that are most likely to succeed, Singal lists pandemic and economic relief in addition to infrastructure and climate change. He also believes Biden can have some success with police reform, as well as increasing support for community colleges and the care-giving workforce.
