“Democrats start with the question of, ‘Are we allowed to do this or not?’ And I think Democratic voters will forgive you if you try and later on it turns out a court strikes it down,” Bardella said. “But at least you tried in the meantime to keep things in place and head toward the next election. What they won’t forgive is if you keep asking them to keep you in power but you don’t do anything with it, or at least try to do something with it.”

Kurt Bardella, a former Republican who now consults for Democrats

As Democrats voice their anger at the passivity of Biden and his leadership, Bardella says party leaders cannot be afraid of bold actions because of potential legal challenges.
