Presidents are often historically judged based on the accomplishments of their first 100 days in office. US President Joe Biden has just passed his 100-day mark. How does his record compare to historical records? How likely are President Biden’s proposals to be adopted? Doug Becker speaks with Jeremi Suri.

Jeremi Suri is a Professor of History at the University of Texas, Austin. He is an expert in American history and is the author of The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America’s Highest Office.
