People keep saying that the Biden administration should have declared a victory over COVID back in April, when the seasonal drop in cases could have been attributed to vaccination. All restrictions could have been removed, ensuring effortless political dominance for the Democrats for the rest of the decade.

Who cares about the Democrats when the next Republican president or Congress can be easily persuaded – like Trump was persuaded to not build the wall and hence sacrifice his next term – to do whatever is necessary.
