Cindy McCain joins board of Biden's presidential transition team

Source: The Hill

Cindy McCain, the widow of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), has joined the advisory board of Democratic nominee Joe Biden's presidential transition team, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday

The news came a week after McCain endorsed Biden, calling the former vice president a "good and honest man."

Other members of the unpaid advisory board include New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D), former Sen. Ted Kaufman (D-Del.), Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D). McCain is the second Republican to join the advisory board, after Bob McDonald, who served as secretary of Veterans Affairs during the Obama Administration.

Presidential transition teams have historically emphasized filling national security roles, as the transition period is considered uniquely vulnerable to terrorist attacks. However, with the coronavirus pandemic ongoing, the Biden transition team is focusing on equipping a potential Biden administration to address public health and economic policy first and foremost.

7. Outstanding! I'm glad to hear it.

Let the handwringing, 2nd-guessing, whining, and gnashing of teeth begin. (If it's not the Lincoln Project that has them all up in arms, it's Cindy McCain.)

2. Here we go again

Reaching across the aisle and empowering members of the GOP to influence a democratic administration. We never learn.

5. My exact thoughts, zipplewrath

Dems playing nice. I'm so over that. Such gestures are never reciprocated by Republicans. We don't owe the McCains or their ilk anything.

14. Why do you assume Biden would allow her to have a negative effect on his administration?


I think he's smarter than that.

18. Because Obama did

Multiple times. And Joe holds out his relationships with the GOP as a positive.

17. Stop playing nice Joe. Do not bring them (their kind) into the fold.

We have plenty of smart talented democrats to choose from.

4. Good luck with that.

I highly doubt that this administration keeps detailed records of what's been happening for the past 4 years.

16. Pretty sure they were vetted, & the 33 Democrats on the team can keep an eye on them.

Advisory Board positions don't get into the operational weeds that the Senior Staff level works at.
