Joe Biden entered the White House with dire news blasting around him. The coronavirus continues its rampage across America, and the economy is on its knees. The President's much-promised "unity" is being tested by opposition from Republicans and Democrats, who either want more progressive or moderate policies. What are Biden's prospects? Washington sage Norm Ornstein joins us, as well as Former Vice President Walter Mondale; Professor Larry Jacobs moderates.
