Let's begin with some of president-elect biden's foreign policy selections the wall street journal opinion page said. They were internationalists but also said on the other. Hand talking about blinken and Jake sullivan they were also more hawkish. On some obama era debates. Mr sullivan supported antitank mrs for ukraine which president obama posed. Mr blinken favored the iraq war in two thousand and two intervention in libya. Mr blanket was known for repeating the mantra superpowers. Don't bluff regarding mr obama's red line fiasco about the use of chemical weapons and syria. I would take that like me. You you agree. Superpowers don't bluff. You don't draw red line and then step back from it. And apparently that's what our new secretary of state Believes as well.

And i worked with all of them when i was supreme allied commander in. They were in all their jobs. And then finally. You're absolutely right. This is an internationalist group. A little bit of hawkish edge to it. But i think that's okay one. It's tempered as you see from this group by that that instinctive desire to reach out into the international world. They'll look for allies. They'll look for coalitions. They'll look to work with international organizations. I think this is a a fine selection and will serve the nation. Well

To fact the results doesn't president trump's refusal to concede discredit those efforts. That's ridiculous it's ridiculous and you asked it because it's ridiculous
Who Could Serve IN The Biden Administration
"Now. The current incumbent of the white house is showing no signs of planning to pack his suitcases. But that hasn't stopped president-elect joe biden from pushing ahead with his plans for the fresh administration a large part of this is the people who will make this administration so comparative unknown who will become household. Names come january for more. I'm joined by louis. Lukens a former. Us diplomat and a senior partner at sigme global advisors. Welcome back lewis. You want it now. i'm i mentioned here. That comparative unknown but the list of the runners and writers to make up the Biden cabinet this pretty well known names in there. He's going to bring on a really experienced team of people. All of whom most of them will have had experienced during the obama or administration's These will be maybe not household names To the american people but most of them will be known certainly within the national security establishment for the top jobs at defense and the state department and national security adviser and those kinds of jobs. So where do we start with. Who's going to pay. When i mean he's likely to name a chief of staff this week. Isn't he chief of staff this week. Probably ron claim who was as chief of staff before and and is a well respected in washington that liked cross the. I'll have to say for the cabinet positions Biden will be a little bit constrained by the senate because the senate of course has to approve The the secretary of state and defense and all those main all the cabinet positions so and we think the republicans are probably going to maintain control of the senate. So what that means is for example. There was some talk that elizabeth warren wanted to be secretary of the treasury. That will not happen now. The the republicans in the senate will not confirm a left-wing progressive democrat for a top job. So it'll force by his cabinet choices to be more centrist Which is not a bad thing actually But it means at that. The progressive wing of the party won't get the sort of personnel appointments obeyed hope to see in washington now filling. His cabinet job says he will give priority to technocratic experience. Loyalty and diversity. What does that mean in terms of who. We are likely to see for some of the top jobs well so he has pledged to have the most diverse cabinet ever. I think so. I think the front runner for secretary of state is susan rice. Her confirmation might be a little bit difficult because the republicans do not like her. But i think they will still try to get her through. I think we'll see a woman a treasury for the first time ever lael brainard. I think we'll see a female secretary of defense for the first time ever with blank florida. Yes michelle foreign. I of course so. I think we'll see a lot of women. And i think we'll see some. And then when you get down into the secretary of urban housing and urban development and human services and health and human services and things like that. I think we'll see people of color We'll see women will see Just in general a much more diverse cabinet than what we have now which is basically a lot of older white men. Let's look at the way that this actually could play out. You mentioned the idea of susan. Rice becoming the next secretary of state we need enormous job in rebuilding us foreign policy after four rather damaging years. One could argue. I mean she's former. Us ambassador to the un national security advisor to president obama. She's she's walk the walk. She's got the experience. She's close to joe biden. She'll be good at rebuilding alliances but there is that fair. Isn't there that if you start trying to bring back people from the obama administration. How much is concerned that. I think that joe biden is simply trying to wind the clock back by four years when america is a very different place now will america is a different place in the world is a different place so there is a bit of that risk. But i think that hurts that biden's team and and his cabinet members will make very clear that they recognize that reality and they certainly are going to bring Some of the values in core beliefs that that they that they had when they worked during the obama administration. Including you know for someone like susan. Rice a belief in working closely with partners and allies in in a belief in multilateral. Ism but you know overlaid with the recognition that the world is certainly a different place in that china is stronger than it was four years ago. And we're dealing with you know. Global threats like terrorism and climate change and In the pandemic so certainly a different range of issues in a different approach to how to work on them But as. I said you know the same values that these people had when they work for obama For years ago one of the big words associated with joe button is unifying and there is a suggestion that he's going to have what's known as a unity cabinet bringing in prominent republicans. How's that going to work. Well it's unclear. I think it's a great idea. In principle to bring in a couple of republicans but some of the republicans whose names have been floated including john casick and mitt. Romney are very very unpopular with the left of the democratic party so he has to be careful in doing so not to upset his own party too much. I think a meg whitman's name has been thrown around as a possible candidate for secretary of commerce. She is someone Lifelong republican but she did endorse a biden and actually endorsed hillary clinton for years ago She is someone who i think would be acceptable to the left of the party. Someone like john. Casick are mitt romney's little bit harder to convince the the progressive that they add value without detracting from the cabinet.

Former Education Secretary John King on the Trump power transition
"10th Secretary of Education is our special guest. John. I want to pick up where you just left off. Because I think it's important Transitions are important American government of the Trump administration transition for a lot of reasons, some of which I outlined in my book, Mr Trump's Wild Ride was uneven to say the best to say that it's best most charitable Because of decisions. People inside that transition made people who got thrown out of that transition process. It was very, very uneven, but the meeting's nevertheless occurred between the outgoing administration and the incoming administration. Give us more context and specificity about this conversation with the incoming Trump administration about a pandemic. Well, the idea Wass and this is something that the Bush administration did with the company Obama administration and president aggressive effort to do that's right. That's right, because Continuity of government is important and you want to make sure the incoming administration is prepared to deal with any eventuality. And President Obama was very clear from the very from the day after the election that we were going to make sure to have a smooth transition as possible. And we began preparing for that even before the election, And then once the election happened are our task was to have a very smooth finish. Unfortunately, The Trump Administration was slow to assemble their transition teams there was to get people to the agencies. This meeting of the Joint Cabinet meeting happened just a few days before they're not gracious, And the idea was at that point to make sure that, uh, Cabinet members were briefing each other on how to deal with these potential crises. And what some of the issues are that Come on. We covered a wide range of subjects is multiple hours. We're sitting in pairs each with our cabinet counterpart. And one of the topics of discussion Wass. How do you deal with the pandemic and What implications would've pandemic have or every agency And during that time secretary of the boss and I talked about how he dealt with colon and each one and wine and some of the implications for schools of a pandemic. But the idea Wass that they would be ready to put those plans into action if they were faced with These kinds of disasters and in fact, the discussion was about a respiratory illness that that was a pandemic that started overseas and how you prepare for that, and we talked about The urgency of getting personal protective equipment, the urgency of getting testing and place the need tohave queer science based communication with the public. They just didn't do those things. Any sense why it's hard to get inside of Ah, heads of the current interest and will observe that a large share of the people who are in that meeting are no longer in the street. All right, But you could also get a sense of a meeting like that, whether or not people are interested or following or devoted to that particular. Task. Look, it didn't it didn't feel Then there was a ton of urgency in the room about these issues. But this look, ultimately the president was responsible. And AH term president set a tone from the very beginning that was dismissive of the pandemic. You know, he said, Oh, this is just going to go away. They're very few cases. It's all under control. And missed a crucial period of time. To get in place the structures necessary for personal protective equipment, prevent the laters for testing and contact tracing system.

"Lots of ways to overcome it i recently read that donald trump has really given his cabinet members free rein to reshape the federal government i wonder how much of this was driven by a cabinet member and not by him i also wonder if i'm being honest how much of this is just driven by someone personally whose industry would benefit from this sort of tariff who donated to donald trump's campaign i'm semi honest i think this is what that smells like to me and it just had the added bonus of sort of trying to undo some of the solar energy support that obama did which has always like an added bonus or him to try to undo anything obama did that's what that seems like to me that this is this is a shortsighted um focus on either benefiting a donor or a cabinet member and this is not indicative of any sort of longterm strategy which i don't think they have well you know the phrase personnel as policy i think that's true and i think that's playing out in the trump administration and big ways outfit i also think it's true that priorities are policy um mmm so like when i talk to people about jeff sessions and the marijuana decision for example i'll here a lot of okay it's it's stupid i wish that he warned doing this but laws should be enforced selectively in congress really should fix this conflict in so maybe that's a good thing okay fine.
