In major election news, the Democratic presidential nominee is considering appointing our current vice president as secretary of state when she wins the election on November 8th. Vice President Biden is probably more favorable among Americans than President Obama himself, and has been very outspoken about this election and the Republican nominee, Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton thinks he will be a great SOS, as does Politico.
According to Politico:
“The vice president, who chaired the Senate Foreign Relations Committee before joining the administration, is one of the most experienced and respected Democrats on the world stage. He’s also coming to what would be the close of a 44-year career in Washington, first with six terms in the Senate and then two terms as President Barack Obama’s closest adviser — and the keeper of the portfolio on some of the most difficult international issues, including Iraq and Ukraine.”
Hillary’s campaign is currently working on a way to tell Biden that he is in the lead for the position that Hillary Clinton herself has already held, according to the source. Biden was once an opponent of Hillary Clinton, and even considered running against her in this election, but has since endorsed her for president. According to someone inside Hillary’s camp:
“He’d be great, and they are spending a lot of time figuring out the best way to try to persuade him to do it if she wins.”
Biden has been hitting the campaign trail hard for Clinton, who is more than five points ahead of Donald Trump in top polls. He’s also said that Donald Trump maybe isn’t smart enough to to the job of president of the United States of America.
He has a point.
Biden and Clinton have worked closely together for a number of years, so he may be a better judge of whether or not she has what it takes to lead. Hillary, seemingly trying to cling to the Obama administration for as much favorable attention as possible before election day, is getting hit hard from critics who say this is nothing more than a strategic move in her political career.
