1. People with knowledge,

People with knowledge and experience who are qualified for the appointment and seek to further the stated goals and agendas and those agencies for the good of the people who are served rather than destroy and block them.

3. Contrary to the opinion of others,

I think that Warren should be over Education. She’s a trained teacher, former law school instructor, she knows so much about finance, she’d be perfect as Secretary of Education. Please agree with me!!!!

6. Elizabeth Warren? Wouldn't she be replaced in the senate ...

We don't need that.

7. I agree with you but would have to have an up front agreement with Cov Baker to appoint a Dem to her

vacant senate seat.

4. Too many qualified people from which to choose.

It's an embarrassment of riches. How refreshing, after 4 years of unqualified, incompetent boobs and criminals.

10. Yang sounds good.

Jill sounds good but personally I am hoping Biden does not put family in. We bitched about donny putting family in so to do the same would be hypocritical.

15. Agree!! Will be hard for Jill as she still plans to work FT. I'm wondering how she can juggle her

duties as FLOTUS while working, not to mention being Sec of Education. Much as she loves working, i don't think she should do it. She can use her FLOTUS platform to champion education causes & advocate for educators.

22. It would be illegal to appoint Jill

under the anti nepotism law passed after Kennedy died. That is why both Jared and Ivanka were given unofficial white house positions that were unpaid.

26. YES PLEASE!!!

A REAL teacher, someone who spent at least a few years in a PUBLIC academic classroom. No former coaches. No former Charter School people.

17. Our party has a very deep bench.

I've no concerns that Biden and Harris won't appoint extraordinarily competent people, even people who are not currently political celebrities.

Personally I'd like to see more government positions filled by utterly boring technocrats.

My political utopia looks a lot like Star Trek TNG.

Make it so. Make it so. Make it so.
