no.
That is the classical double-standard, the built-in presumption that Dems need to do a flawless job to be considered only just as or a little bit less competent than Republicans who mess up completely and often intentionally.

No question Biden, Harris and the rest of the party will do great things, but in 2022 and 2024, all that should matter to voters is whether they did better than Trump and his GOP to get them reelected.

Don't put the bar to success too high for Democrats to achieve, and the bar to failure too low for Republicans not to clear it.
