President Joe Biden is stuck in the middle of a heated Democratic fight, threading a needle between progressives who want expansive social spending and more conservative Democrats who are skeptical of that effort and prefer to focus on a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill. "He has got an enormous challenge, because somehow he has to balance all that," says Professor Grant Reeher. He also notes how high the stakes are, adding, "Except for the moderate Democrats, it seems to me like everyone is playing with fire. On the progressive side, if you really burn this thing down or really hurt this president, it is not clear to me that the alternative in 2024 is a more progressive Democrat."
