Dan Henninger: @DanHenninger, @WSJOpinion; editorial board and Wonder Land column; in re:  Biden said, “I’ll be an ally of the light, not the darkness.”  This is from his acceptance speech he also added: “The current president has cloaked the country in darkness for much too long.”   He accused the president of having no plan; Biden has no known plan.  Biden said that Trump is personally responsible for 220 thousand flu deaths and that 200 thousand Americans will die by the end of this year.  

This administration has large and publicized plans, and is working hell for leather on vaccines.  The election is beginning to tighten up.  Biden may have spent too much time alone in a basement and on Zoom calls.  Biden is trying to negotiate a division in his own party between the left and the center. He’s not especially adept at doing that.   He doesn't seem to be able to hit a fast ball any more.  Concerning Hunter’s matter, there definitely are problems; his total denial is likely to come back and bite him.
