    I'm sure the conservative media ecosystem will come up with plenty of reasons to hate him in the morning.

    Ah yes. The Iran deal that kept Iran from progressing toward building nuclear weapons that failed because after Trump break the deal, Iran is close to building nuclear weapons.

    Linda Thomas-Greenfield for US Ambassador.

    Thomas-Greenfield served as the top U.S. diplomat to Africa under President Obama, an assistant secretary job that capped her 35-year career in the Foreign Service. Known as ďLTGĒ among State Department rank-and-file, Thomas-Greenfield retired in 2017 after Trump took power and joined the Albright Stonebridge advisory firm as a senior counselor where she worked with her mentor former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

    Sheís definitely qualified for the job. It will be nice to have someone competent again.

    Competence is the bare minimum. I don't know enough about her to actually disparage her for the role. Just not excited about the idea of "because its always been this way." Again, don't know enough about her. A concern more than anything.

    What is wrong with experienced Obama folks? I'll take that when it comes to national security, foreign policy and treasury when we're in a pandemic and recession.

    Exactly, and it's not likely you could get very progressive picks through the senate since the democrats likely will still be in the minority there. I think the key to the first two years is return to normalcy and hopefully get through the pandemic and a likely economic recession without too much pain. Then hope you can flip a few seats in 2022 and have a better chance at implemented more progressive goals.

    Nothing wrong per se. Just saying out loud I would prefer younger than 74 for many posts and new blood.

    Younger new blood goes into deputy/assistant/under secretary positions. In January, Biden needs experienced people who can lead the clean up the mess without much of a learning curve.
