My Biden cabinet picks

I had a thread a few months back that somehow got deleted but now that it's official, I've updated my list of possible candidates. I realize some of these are long shots.



Chief of Staff: Ron Klain

Sec of State: Susan Rice

White House Press Sec: TJ Ducklo

Sec of Defense: Christine Fox. (Fun fact. She was the inspiration for the Kelly Mcgillis character on Top Gun)

Sec of Treasury: Austan Goolsbee

Sec of Homeland Security: Andrew Cuomo

Sec of Agriculture: Kathleen Merrigan

Sec of Education: Linda Darling-Hammond

That's all I can think of for now.

5. Three that come to mind

* Letitia James for Attorney General (Current AG for New York)
* Anthony Fauci for Surgeon General of Secretary of Health and Human Services
* Jay Inslee for Department of the Interior (Yes, he just won his second term as governor, but we have a fantastic Lt. Gov. in Denny Heck)

10. Shouldn't that be DNC Chair?

But yes. Assuming she doesn't decide to run for governor in Georgia in 2022.
