Biden’s Ukraine speech was aimed at allies, not voters

A high-profile speech on Ukraine is probably the last thing Democratic pollsters would have wanted from President Joe Biden. Good news on the pandemic would be welcome. If there had to be tough talk about a nasty foe, they would surely have hoped it would be about inflation, not Russian President Vladimir Putin. Or they may have wanted the president out there touting the booming numbers on jobs and economic growth. Anything but a foreign policy problem that few Americans care about.
