By all objective measures Biden would not be president without black women. So yes he owes black women a lot, and as far as I am concerned the whole government should be made of black women. But according to our sources, President-elect Biden will name Linda Thomas-Greenfield to serve as Biden’s ambassador to the United Nations, looking to a Black woman and respected diplomat to restore morale. An announcement the president-elect’s top national security advisers is expected for Tuesday.
It is very likely that Biden will pick a black woman to be white house press secretary – Simone Sanders could be the right pick. But some Democrats are urging Biden to pick a Latina.
In addition, Biden intends to name his longtime adviser Antony Blinken as secretary of state, according to three people familiar with the matter, setting out to assemble his cabinet even before Donald Trump concedes defeat.
He will also name Jake Sullivan, formerly one of Hillary Clinton’s closest aides, to be Biden’s national security adviser. SULLIVAN and BLINKEN are good friends and BLINKEN and MICHÈLE FLOURNOY a candidate for Defense secretary own a strategic advisory firm together.
