3:12 pm
can the biden administration pull it off, jon? >> really, critical goal for the president to have president biden elect biden -- because everything really depends now on getting the virus under control. any kind of economic recovery is going to require us getting passed where we are now which is this very dark place of pervasive virus spread, and we're up to 400,000 deaths in the united states. 24 million cases confirmed cases of numbers following much higher than that. so the pfizer and moderna vaccine makers say that they really have enough that has been ordered by the united states to fulfill that objective of 100 million and we're doing close to a million vaccinations a day now the problem has been that the distribution of the vaccine has been badly handled so states are
3:13 pm
not complaining about not enough support to get vaccinations to people. i was talking with the ceo of moderna earlier this week, and he said look, you know, there's going to be a demand around the world for these vaccines we're pumping out as of as we can. it has got to really be effectively and efficiently handled because if you come back to us and say hey we want another hundred million doses, you know, you could -- offer me a billion dollars you could offer me ten billion dollars i have only so much manufacture capability that's flat out at the moment. jon: joe biden is going to invoke defense production act to try to procure more vaccines but it is not clear whether the vaccine makers are actually capable of delivering more, isn't it? >> well i think the problem right now is that there has been kind of mismanagement of coronavirus crisis right from the get-go.
3:14 pm
you know, in ability to get proper hospital to mask even messaging out of the white house about, you know, essentially -- making mask wearing optional and it really isn't at this point you have to protect yourself and protect others. so they're going to focus down stream on the kind of the inepness of that last mile once the states get it how do they get it to people and the feds are going to step in. they're going create federal centers for vaccine distribution. could be bureaucratic no doubt. but whaing you're seeing jon, you're seeing a much bigger emphasis on actual managing the problem. as opposed to kind of handing off responsibility to states that are simply overwhelmed by it. jon: here he is a button bullet points of the first 100 days in office. these are some of the things that biden administration plans to do they want to extend the
3:15 pm
pause on student loan payments rejoin the paris climate accord, resending travel ban on predominant muslim countries and mask man date for federal property and interstate travel now you mention masks. isn't that essentially already in place -- the mask mandate? >> not really. no. this administration has made this quite optional as you can see from photographs that the white house where people aren't wearing masks and spreading covid. and the president at his rallies people are not wearing masks it has really been -- kind of has made a political point and shouldn't be a political point but straight out health issue. so the president can't say to a state you must do this but we can say to federal properties where he has authority over, that anybody coming on to the property or working on the property needs to be wearing a mafntion. airlines as well there's federal
3:16 pm
oversight of airlines but where you can do this is what biden administration says it is going to do is kind of put the arm on governs and mayors and state officials to spread the word of the essentialness of the basic hygiene which is wearing a mask 37. that i think the biden administration you're going hear much more about this in their messaging on coronavirus again they're putting at the top of their list. which is quite frankly where this needs to be, you do not have an economic recovery until people feel safe enough to go back to work and sending their kids to school. jon: wall street journal social editor john bussy thanks. >> pleasure. >> kamala harris has chosen supreme court justice sonia to swear her in on january 20th. harris says she made choice based on justice background in civil rights work and use a bible once owned by sir good

3:35 pm
i think it is going to be a little bit of a free for all after january 20th to be totally honest with you, i mean, look political parties do tend to take on the identities of whoever the incumbent president is right the democratic party was a clinton party in the 1990s. it was the republican party was a bush party in had the 2000s now republican party is a donald trump party and question going forward will be -- what donald trump's role will be what his responsibilities will be after he leaves office. and it's also nationally the case that further away from one's time in office, a president's influence does wane so i would have to think republican party going forward there's going to be a little bit of a fight if you will for the heart and soul of the party but also to see kind of where the party goes in terms of a vision and what the party is going to stand for. >> when you think of the last couple of democrat nominees, hillary clinton, john kerry they're not exactly standard bearer of the democrats right
3:36 pm
now. >> that's certainly true but you know i would argue that neither of those people had this same following, have the same amount of influence over the party as donald trump did in part because he served four years as president. but also he's been sort of a uniquely polarizing figure in american politic those who love him love him those who dislike him really dislike him so i do think it is a different scenario with trump. and i do think his influence ends up lasting a little bit longer precisely because he did serve as president but also because of the the nature of who he is. jon: the question about joe biden is, you know, will he be a sort of -- centrist democrat that he was for much of his career on capitol hill? or will he get pushed to left by the bernie sanders and alexandria cortezs of the world? >> well jon that is xeangt the right question. you know, doing a certain degree, biden for some people you know they look at his career they look at for example, the friendship he's had with mitch mcconnell over years and other renales they say look, here's the guy who could want to do
3:37 pm
business who could actually want to cut some deals with republicans and get some things done. he did put out his stimulus package yesterday. and it suggests you know there are element there is that i think republicans will agree with but he's also put in some elements that i think republicans are really not going to agree with. which suggest if anything there is this influence of the progressive left there's this influence of the aoc and bernie sanders of the democratic party. and those may, in fact, be a lot stronger influences on joe biden now than they've been in the past so there is reason for concern when you look at the policy he's already put out there. >> 15 dollar national minimum wage for instance, it might make sense if you're flipping burgers in new york city. but not so much in mississippi or wyoming. >> yeah. i think incredibly controversial given where the economy is jon. look you've got so many businesses that are already struggling under the weight of the covid-19 lockdown you have entire industries, hospital transportation, leisure, that
3:38 pm
has been hit so hard. and now putting on top of that, a potential impediment to hiring and growth that is the thing, example where have i think the policy kind of went off the rails here. so yeah i think, look, a more centrist policy a more centrist proposal would not have included that it wouldn't have included hundreds billions of dollars to bail out poorly run cities and states. these are the sorts of things that we have to look carefully at when we look at what biden will do in comes years. jon: lanny from hoover institution lanny, thank you. >> thank you. jon: as covid-19 continues to spread, the need for substitute teachers is higher than ever. what school districts are trying to do so boost their rosters. ♪ ♪
