Joe Biden could not only be the most progressive president; he could also become the most effective.
That is because he has a vast pool of talented Democrat mayors, senators and prominent figures to choose from when he puts together his administration, especially his cabinet.
For instance, breaking precedent he could name his wife Jill Biden as his White House interpreter to explain what he is talking about when Kamala Harris is busy running the country or out of town. Only the other day Jill had to clarify that her husband was really a moderate and not a progressive, as he said he was.
“Joe Biden is a moderate and that is what he’s always been,” she said.
To which, President Trump responded, “Joe Biden is whatever they want him to be.”
A President Biden right out of the box could name Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, 39, his chief of staff. Frey, a former community organizer, like the sainted Barack Obama, is noted for ordering cops to abandon a police station so that “peaceful demonstrators” could loot, gut and burn it down in the wake of the George Floyd killing.
That incident, which occurred May 28, will most likely become a national holiday under Biden. That is because it legitimized attacks on police stations in other Democrat-run cities like Portland and Seattle.
It showed that it was time to handcuff cops, not the criminals.
It also boosted the morale of the hate-America anarchists of antifa, which has become the militant arm of the Democratic Party.
Democratic Party anarchists, who campaigned against providing police departments with military gear, could, under a Biden presidency, move to turn that gear over to antifa.
That way, in the interest of fairness and social justice, antifa would be as well armed as the cops they are attacking. Jill Biden could hold a White House press briefing on the matter along with Harris and Supreme Court Justice Michelle Obama.
Massachusetts should do well in a Biden administration. He most likely will appoint Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the former Cherokee, as secretary of the treasury so she can destroy capitalism, even though it made her rich.
Biden then could persuade RINO Gov. Charlie Baker to appoint Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, who has no place to go, to replace Warren in the U.S. Senate. Walsh made his bones when he accused Trump of inciting violence in Portland where the mob attacked the federal courthouse.
Biden could return his old friend John Kerry to his post as secretary of state since we haven’t lost a war since he left. Nor have we given away billions more in cash to Kerry’s buddies, the mullahs in Iran. The mullahs must miss him.
Al Sharpton, who knows a lot about taxes — or not paying them — could head up the Internal Revenue Service.
A key Biden decision will be his pick to replace Attorney General William Barr. Right now, the contest is between New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
Biden’s first thought might be to name de Blasio as ambassador to Afghanistan as a reward for turning New York City into a war zone. However, de Blasio’s critics claimed that Lightfoot was the better appointee, given all that she has done to make Chicago the murder capital of the world.
After changing the name to the Department of Homeland Insecurity, two top progressives emerge as front-runners for the important secretary’s job.
However, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler seems likely to nose out Seattle Mayor Jen Durkin because of his outstanding work sustaining the riots in his city for over 75 consecutive nights. Durkin could be his deputy.
Since open borders is a basic plank in the Democratic Party platform, the pair would be expected to go to the southern border to welcome waves of undocumented anarchists, communists, terrorists, nihilists, looters and new Democrats into the country.
