Professor Stephen Farnsworth of the University of Mary Washington in Virginia said that searing testimony of the police officers guarding the U.S. Capitol during the January 6, 2021 insurrection should make it clear to everyone just how dangerous the rioters were, and how close the nation came to disaster that day.
Professor Stephen Farnsworth of the University of Mary Washington in Virginia said that President Biden continues to struggle with obtaining unanimous support among Democratic senators for his legislative agenda, as many of them are looking towards their own elections in 2022 and 2024.

“Former presidents have never been able to dominate the discourse because the vast majority of the attention is directed toward the president in office, and fewer still have tried to remain as publicly visible as former President Trump is trying to be,” said Stephen Farnsworth, director of the Center for Leadership and Media Studies at the University of Mary Washington and author of “Presidential Communication and Character: White House News Management from Clinton and Cable to Twitter and Trump.”
Professor Stephen Farnsworth of the University of Mary Washington said that in a 50-50 US Senate, Democratic senators can only go as far as the most moderate Democratic senator is willing to go. Without every single Democratic senator voting for filibuster reform, most of President Biden's agenda will be blocked by Republicans, Farnsworth said.
