Washington Post columnist James Hohmann claimed Friday that the United Kingdom’s newly crowned King Charles III could learn from President Biden’s “example” of leadership.

While comparing the two men, the column argued both “see themselves as a bulwark against forces trying to overthrow everything they stand for” and “each grapples with unfavorable comparisons to his predecessor.”

“One man scraped his way to the top. The other was born into a dynasty,” Hohmann began as he referenced Biden and then Charles. He added, “One man is an Irish Catholic who keeps a rosary in his pocket. The other lost his favorite great-uncle to an IRA terrorist attack.”

However, despite those differences, the Post writer argued “the two men might find they have a great deal in common, at least in this moment,” when they meet at the funeral for Queen Elizabeth II on Monday.

“The two septuagenarians each see themselves as a bulwark against forces trying to overthrow everything they stand for. Biden says he ran for president because of the violence in Charlottesville and is laying the groundwork to run again in 2024 to save democracy from former president Donald Trump,” Hohmann explained.

In addition to hailing Biden and Charles as stalwarts against the alleged threats of Trump and Brexit, the columnist observed, “Both men know about waiting.” He noted that, “Charles has been an understudy forever, the oldest person to ever ascend to the British throne in the millennium-long history of the royal family,” while, “Biden is the oldest president in U. S. history and came to the presidency on his third try overcoming staggering odds and the doubts of his own party.”… (Read more)
