As President Trump’s legal challenges to overturn enough ballots to change the results of the 2020 presidential election continue, Joe Biden forges ahead in the search to fill top roles in his potential administration.
Among the most formidable contenders is former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Per The Washington Post:
An informal sketch of Biden’s orbit continued to take shape, with Steve Ricchetti, who served as chief of staff for Biden during his vice presidency, expected to assume a senior adviser role and Ted Kaufman, who temporarily succeeded Biden in the Senate when he was elevated to the vice presidency, becoming the head of a kitchen cabinet of sorts on which Biden will rely, according to a person familiar with the structure. Mike Donilon, another veteran Biden hand, is also expected to be a senior adviser to the president-elect.
One intriguing name being discussed privately is former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, according to the person familiar with the chatter who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The thinking behind the move was that it would be a way for Biden to highlight the importance of that position in his administration and that placing her there would raise the prestige of the U.N. itself at a time when global cooperation, and the U.S. role on the world stage, has ebbed.
Should Republicans retain control of the Senate, it seems unlikely Secretary Clinton would have the votes to get confirmed by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
