Potential Biden Cabinet list circulates; who’s who of past Dem losers will likely motivate Trump voters

A new “Axios on HBO” column by Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen offers a peak behind the curtain of what a Joe Biden administration might look like, and it’s sure to provide additional motivation to those on the right to ensure that President Donald Trump is reelected.

On the other hand, some may suggest that this is part of an ongoing effort to project Biden as the winner of the Democratic primary, in hopes of avoiding socialist Bernie Sanders being the party’s nominee.

But that’s just the beginning of what a Biden administration is expected to look like.

VandeHei and Allen write that Biden’s advisers described a “Return to Normal plan” that will counter Trump’s “unorthodox, improvisational style,” saying Biden plans to surround himself with known, trusted people — trusted on the left, of course.

And there are more than a few names from the Obama years.

There is mention of John Kerry possibly returning as secretary of state, if he doesn’t take a new Cabinet position devoted to climate change, but Susan Rice is also named as a potential candidate for...
