Joe Biden already has a group of seasoned government veterans advising him on policy…
Most are from his time in the Obama admin….
Others are from the Clinton admin and some are probably from the early Trump admin….
The people in these cabinet level jobs are supposed to be confirmed by the US Senate with a simple majority….A Democratic Majority in the US Senate next year would just about guarantee that a Biden pick would be approved…There ARE a LOT of women on this list and some of these people have NO chance due to internal Democratic politics and Biden’s need to get along with Republicans in the Senate…
I’ll make a list and plug in some of my guesses and put what others have suggested…….
As this post ages ?
