Michael Williams, associated professor of public administration and international affairs, was quoted in the New York Times article, "Biden Races to Expand Coalition Against Russia but Meets Resistance."
"Biden does have a challenge," says Professor Grant Reeher. "He is arguing, 'I am here as the American president to be the leading voice.' But then he is subject to people saying, 'Wait a minute, look at what you folks have been going through. Why is it you? Why isn’t it [German Chancellor] Angela Merkel? Or one of the other leaders?'"
