Two fools pretend they are in unity, for need. As vice president, Joe Biden’s weekly meal with President Barack Obama wasn’t just a meal but “a meeting when things really got done,” and Biden vowed the same relationship with his veep, Kamala Harris, notes RealClearPolitics’ Philip Wegmann. Yet the two have “only sat down to lunch twice this year, a significant drop” from the 12 lunches they had by this time in 2021. And this “amid whispers of a rocky start to their working relationship.” The pair’s busy schedules, Harris’ positive COVID test and that of others around them may partly explain the paucity of shared lunches. Meanwhile, though, their meals have reportedly “lacked a real depth of personal and political intimacy”; Biden has been unable to recreate the “sense of camaraderie” he enjoyed with Obama.
