I hope that Joe Biden understands that he will be judged not by how much he cooperates with Republicans, but by results....

The other insight—-which I pray that Biden has learned from his eight years in the Obama administration and from recent post-election events such as Mnuchin's transfer of $455 billion of stimulus money back into the Treasury's general fund, where it will require new congressional authorization before being used—-is that the Republicans' only goal will be to make him a one-term president and that there is no level of harm to the country which they would not countenance in order to achieve that goal. The same Republicans who refused to allow a second stimulus package for Barack Obama after the financial crisis of 2008 have crowed for the past dozen years that the recovery was the weakest and the slowest in American history.

Sure, Biden should be as polite and respectful as possible, but when it comes to policies to stop the spread of the virus and to protect and restore the economy (as well as protect the world from a looming climate emergency), he should simply declare an emergency and take whatever actions are necessary.
