重新调整; 重新审视

举例:The unrelated events illustrated Biden's predicament as he seeks to recalibrate around his massive economic proposals: a $3.5 trillion budget bill and $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill. Officials told CNN that Biden hopes to recapture momentum lost over a calamitous August, but the series of events Friday afternoon underscored the difficulty for any President to completely move past the outside events that often come to define a presidency. (CNN)

举例:He spoke by telephone Thursday with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to confer on a path forward on his massive legislative agenda. (CNN)

skittish

意思:adjective: (of a person) playfully frivolous or unpredictable;of a person) not serious and likely to change their beliefs or opinions often (人)易变的;反复无常的;易激动的; 轻浮的; 变幻莫测的

举例:If Democrats -- particularly those who are skittish about the political repercussions of enacting such significant changes to the role of government in the US economy -- can't unify now, they will likely be left with nothing. (CNN)

举例:To be sure, any comparisons in approval ratings between Biden and his predecessors are filled with caveats, given the acrid political climate and the remarkable changes in the presidency over the decades. (CNN)

hear out

意思:to listen to all that someone has to say; to listen to someone until said everything they want to say
听完叙述; 听…把话说完

举例:This week, before leaving for his vacation home in Rehoboth Beach, Biden began meeting in-person with moderate Democratic Sens. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, hearing out their concerns about the amount of spending. With Manchin, he listened patiently to a proposal that would more than halve the size of the final bill. Biden has not endorsed that plan, but also hasn't yet had luck in convincing the skeptical Democrat to come along with his. (CNN)
