Cindy McCain set to land Biden ambassadorship

President JOE BIDEN is preparing to name Republican CINDY MCCAIN to a coveted ambassador post in Western Europe in what would be his administration’s first Republican appointee to a Senate-confirmed position.

McCain is undergoing vetting to be nominated for U.S. ambassador to the U.N. World Food Programme, a mission based in Rome, according to two sources with knowledge of the matter. This comes after the administration declined to install at least one member from the opposing party in a Cabinet position — a practice of three consecutive presidents (BILL CLINTON, GEORGE W. BUSH and BARACK OBAMA) before DONALD TRUMP broke the streak.

Cindy McCain, the wife of the late Sen. JOHN MCCAIN, gave Biden a critical boost in Arizona with her endorsement of the Democrat over Trump. Biden was the first Democratic presidential nominee to carry the state since Clinton in 1996.

McCain, 66, is undergoing a background check for the post. The Biden administration is expected to announce most of its ambassadors at the same time, rather than individually.

2. That's good news. I approve. However...

... I hope that Biden is prepared for the onslaught of criticism from the haters who are obsessed with the notion that he can do nothing right... and that anything he does is never-good-enough.

We've all seen them. They're easy to spot.

5. She came out for same sex marriage quite a while ago

Before SCOTUS ruled for it. Ever since then, she has my grudging respect.

9. Is it really necessary to attack a woman even McCain using her weight?

Calling her a 'beached whale' is offensive and unnecessary.

8. Appoint Toomey as ambassador to Ireland

and then allow the PA Democratic Governor to appoint John Fetterman to the US Senate.

(Idea copied from TheRudePundit on twitter, and I think it's brilliant.)
