I saw somewhere that they may try to coax Pat Toomey out of the senate (he’s already announced he isn’t running again) with commerce or treasury. They are going to have to get people through the senate, so I’m guessing Rice is probably going to be in a position that doesn’t require confirmation.

I think we will see a lot of the younger Democrats who lost their elections this time around, get to play some part in a Biden government to strengthen their candidacy for their next elections. Not sure other than Mayor Pete to get a Secretary spot, but a undersecretary sure, or be part of committees on health care, voting rights, racial justice, etc.

Other than saying the Benghazi attacks were from protestors who were upset with an anti-Muslim video on YouTube, I don't see anything wrong with her assessment of the situation.

Doesn't matter the facts, just how it looks and the GOP has gone hard on how Benghazi was this disaster because it was sortof tied to Hillary

Ron Klain is almost definitely Chief of Staff. Buttigieg doesn't have the experience for that important of a job. Put him in charge of the VA.

I don't think any Dem Senators will be offered a slot as every Senate slot is important.

I heard a good one - Offer Susan Collins Sec of State and let the Dem Maine governor appoint her replacement.

With Phil Hartman on my mind after my Admiral Stockdale reference, I read this differently. But man that would have been awesome (Al and Phil).

Even then, I am pretty sure it will progressive light. Biden will recognize the help, but the cabinet is not going to be heavy left.

When the public doesn't approve of a public figure, whether it's brainwashing or truth depends on the letter by their name. If R, truth. If D, brainwashing.

Nah, she's getting her little F*** You Moment as electoral voter, that ought to be enough really. He has so many things to do, i doubt there's any political capital to spare for spite. If there's a lot of baggage (and deserved or not hardly matters), that's only worth it for someone really perfect for a job without any good alternatives.

We are waiting for the speech and like I mentioned earlier... I don't like the lack of social distancing. Masks are good. Outside is good. But everyone is way too close together.

My just turned 19 year old (Today), came home from college this past weekend. She works at 6 flags and needs money. She stayed with us until Tuesday, so she could vote. My 20 year old said she voted.

Happy I raised them right.

This is a very very good speech by Biden. Arguably the best one he's ever given.
