Biden taking a "soft-shoe" approach to achieve his ambitious agenda - Bednar

U.S. President Joe Biden addressed Congress and passed the symbolic 100-day mark. AFP reports that now the real heavy lifting begins: convincing rival Republicans -- and some recalcitrant Democrats -- to sign on to his ambitious remaking of America. To win them over, Bednar said Biden's approach has been "soft-shoe," letting his actions speak louder than words -- a contrast with his combative predecessor Donald Trump. But Biden must above all convince Republicans, and skittish Democrats, "that his policies are very popular with their constituents" back home, Bednar said.
