    The Biden Presidency

    Let's start predicting the Cabinet now! I wonder if he will pick any former Obama surrogates, similar to Obama picking Holder (a former Clinton guy)

    State:
    Defense:
    Attorney General:
    HHS:


    I'm almost tempted to say he'd throw Stacy Abrams a bone at State, since she's certainly going to be a good reason he might win Georgia, but she doesn't have any experience at the federal level.


    I'd love it if Schiff was AG, as he'd be the anti-Bill Barr

    Schiff is definetly preferred pick as AG. With the Republicans holding the Senate all the confirmation processes should be fun. If they reject Biden's nominee he should can still appoint an acting AG or other position. Put someone they really ****ing hate there if they wont confirm. Like Hillary or Obama. Local DA in Philly Larry Krasner would also be a great pick.

    Doug Jones would be a fantastic choice for AG. It should be someone that doesn't raise partisan hackles.

    Hadn't really thought about that actually.

    Biden actually went down to campaign for Jones during the special election against Moore. Jones is an honorable man, should definitely be considered for it.

    I fully expect Biden to nominate at least one person who has been dead 20 years and another who is fictional.

    This seems a bit premature. Hope you haven't blown your wad on what was supposed to be a dry run, and blue yourself.

    How long does he last before Harris is president....over under 2.25 years

    I think Harding’s 881 days is a good goal for him to shoot for

    The presidency is hard on folks. People age like crazy. I’m not all sure he can make it 4 years.

    You can’t even think about this thread until the Senate is decided.

    Mitch is going to ball bust Biden until he chooses centrists to fill his cabinet.

    It would be wise for him to hang on (or the administration to make it look as such) until after the mid-terms.

    The vote count won't stop until the Senate has been decided for the Ds.

    If the senate stays with Mitch

    And Mitch wants to play hard ball

    Just do what trump did and run “acting directors” out there all the time

    Don’t even bother with senate confirmation and tell Mitch to get ****ed
