Biden's long political evolution leads to his biggest test

WILMINGTON, Del. – Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. has navigated a half-century in American politics by relentlessly positioning himself at the core of the Democratic Party.Wherever that power center shifted, there Biden has been, whether as the young senator who opposed court-order busing in school integration cases or the soon-to-be 46th president pitching an agenda on par with Franklin D.

Roosevelt’s New Deal and Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society.The common thread through that evolution is Biden always pitching himself as an institutionalist -- a mainstream liberal but also a pragmatist who still insists that governing well depends on compromise and consensus.Now Biden’s central political identity faces the ultimate trial.
