Joe Biden Wins the Presidential Election, Defeating Donald Trump
After an excruciating, nasty, high-drama presidential campaign that left much of America emotionally and mentally exhausted, Joe Biden was elected as the nation's 46th president Tuesday by offering the opposite: normalcy, competence and calm.

... After a four-year experiment with a former reality TV star who was the first president to have no experience in elected office or the military, someone who launched daily personal insults on social media against his nemeses, and someone who openly promoted his business and family members while he was in the nation's highest elected office, American political consumers delivered their verdict: They had had enough of Brand Trump.

Ultimately, Trump became the figure of a political Greek tragedy. Like a modern-day Narcissus, Trump made much of his presidency about himself, punishing those who were not "nice" to him and demanding loyalty not to the country or even the Republican Party, but to himself.

By the time Trump had to take on Biden one on one, that dynamic had been set. Much as he attacked the former vice president and his family, Trump was unable to make the election something other than a referendum on himself. He lost that referendum Friday.
