US President Joe Biden

President Joe Biden should announce now that he will not run for re-election in 2024. He should not ask the Democratic Party, or America, to assume the risk of a second four-year term that would begin after he reached the age of 82.

The conventional calculus argues that a president would be a fool to reveal such a plan before he has to, because it would instantly undercut his ability to get anything of real significance accomplished.
