Hillary Clinton may be on the shortlist for a White House job under the Biden administration. Joe Biden, despite not actually having been declared the President by an official body, has begun picking members of his cabinet and Hillary Clinton is coming as a highly recommended individual from the Mainstream Media. More From The Washington Post:
An informal sketch of Biden’s orbit continued to take shape, with Steve Ricchetti, who served as chief of staff for Biden during his vice presidency, expected to assume a senior adviser role and Ted Kaufman, who temporarily succeeded Biden in the Senate when he was elevated to the vice presidency, becoming the head of a kitchen cabinet of sorts on which Biden will rely, according to a person familiar with the structure. Mike Donilon, another veteran Biden hand, is also expected to be a senior adviser to the president-elect.
One intriguing name being discussed privately is former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, according to the person familiar with the chatter who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The thinking behind the move was that it would be a way for Biden to highlight the importance of that position in his administration and that placing her there would raise the prestige of the U.N. itself at a time when global cooperation, and the U.S. role on the world stage, has ebbed.
It would certainly be interesting, to say the least, if Hillary Clinton was selected as the next ambassador to the UN. The concern for many is the record of Clinton, but many are also raising concerns about the very idea that the potential Biden administration would look to put the UN as a true authoritative body. The UN is a highly controversial body with an awful record by many accounts.
