Since Joe Biden was elected president elect on Saturday, there has been much speculation about who he would appoint to his cabinet, and the media has joined the fight.
Axios speculated that Pete Buttigieg, Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, would be part of the President’s Cabinet. The New York Times suggested that Michèle Flournoy, former Assistant Secretary of Defense for Strategy from Bill Clinton’s administration, could head the Department of Defense and Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor under Barack Obama, could become Secretary of State. While USA Today speculated that Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar could serve under Biden.
Joe Biden served as a senator from Delaware for over 25 years, and during that time he made many connections and established many relationships, but who will he elect?
New Zealander and blogger David Farrar shared his cabinet in the Biden dream team on Sunday night. Among his appointees were Utah Senator Mitt Romney, Buttigieg, Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth and former House of Representatives President Paul Ryan.
