Democrats have been angling for positions within a potential Joe Biden administration ever since he clinched the party’s presidential nomination in March.
While voters may think they are choosing the “moderate” candidate Dr. Jill Biden claims her husband is, in practice they would be electing the “most progressive” — i.e. left-wing — governments in U.S. history.
Here are some of the candidates who are angling for, or rumored to be under consideration, key administration posts:
Secretary of State: Susan Rice
From the Rwandan genocide to the Benghazi terror attack, America’s worst diplomat is gunning for the job that has eluded her for her entire career. The richest member of the Obama administration, she serves on the board of Netflix, which faces criminal charges for distributing Cuties, a French film that sexualizes preteen girls.
Secretary of Labor: Bernie Sanders
Secretary of the Treasury: Elizabeth Warren
The radical Senator who campaigned against the financial system wants to run it. Warren proposed a wealth tax, but her campaign fell apart when it became clear she needed middle-class taxes, too.
Attorney General: Sally Yates
Yates was in on the plot to frame Michael Flynn, and quit the Department of Justice rather than enforce a constitutional travel ban on travelers from terror-prone countries that was later upheld by the Supreme Court.
U.S. Trade Representative: Pete Buttigieg
Climate Change Czar: John Kerry
Gun Control Czar: Beto O’Rourke
Secretary of Defense: Michèle Flournoy
National Security Advisor: Tom Donilon
Donilon, who once held the post under Obama, saw “America building bigger, better relationships with China and India,” according to the Washington Post, describing the “Donilon Doctrine.”
Department of Homeland Security: Julian Castro
Secretary of Housing and Urban Development: Keisha Lance Bottoms
Coronavirus Czar: Anthony Fauci
Biden has said many times that he would put Dr. Fauci in charge of the coronavirus response. Instead of being balanced by economic experts, Fauci would be given license to push for draconian shutdowns.
FBI Director: Christopher Wray
The FBI agents’ association has has publicly called on the next president to keep Wray on the job — after he failed to stop Antifa from trashing the nation’s cities, or to uproot politicization within the agency.
