Valerie Jarrett and Pete will be part of the administration no doubt in my mind. I also think Susan Rice as SoS is a good call. But I agree Ron Klain will be Chief of Staff if he wants it. He may not. I think whoever it is has to be someone who knows Biden and has worked with him for years. Someone familiar. A Truth speaker. And has to have a good relationship with Congress. Klain has those credentials. Biden needs to stay away from people like Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel who are shit on a stick.c Actually Sally Yates would make a great Supreme Court nominee.

Biden has people that he has been working with for decades that will be better suited as a a Chief of Staff than Pete.
A. They know DC. A must for that job. It is not a great position for on the job training since they can make or break a presidency.
B. They know Biden and have his trust. Pete is trust worthy as well, but established relationships matter.
C. CoS wastes Pete's oratorial skills because it is primarily a behind the scenes job. That can change, but you really don't want a CoS in front of the cameras a lot.
D. Pete might hive higher political aspirations. CoS builds connections, but running a Department gives him a different set of political power.
Wherever Pete goes, he will be successful!!! He's already scoring points with Democrats that had cooled to him during the Primary with his recent Fox soundbites.

I'd like to believe that this kind of bipartisanship has been blown out of Democratic thinking by the last few years. Clinton and Obama made Republicans their Defense secretaries, reinforcing the message that Democrats were softer and less strategic, that you need a Republican to handle that stuff. FUCK that SHIT. Blare out the true message that Republicans kill everything they touch, and put our own people in there.
As for Romney, he's a close crony of Netanyahu whose vision of the world mainly has to do with global finance and what he can get out of it. He lost in 2012 because too many people hated his out-of-touch billionaire attitude and hostility to regular wage-earners. He's carved out a little niche by opposing Trump here and there, and voted to convict him in Feb., but he's still a Republican, a proponent of a vicious and failed ideology, and far worse than many a Democrat would be at rebuilding our currently ruinous foreign policy.

But IF there's a Democratic sweep in the Senate then it takes the pressure off a potential Warren appointment, because they can easily ride out the few months to a special election with one fewer senator. Right now according to the polls they are competitive in about a dozen seats (which is not to say they'll win them all) and only in real danger of losing one in Alabama.
If you really felt that Warren or whomever was the right choice for the position in question it'd be dumb to pass them up under those circumstances.

It depends, I think Kerry gave up his seat to become SOS because Republicans were in control of the Senate which means he had almost no power. If they are thinking about retiring soon a chance to do something new might be attractive. If their party controls the Senate the older ones stand a good chance of becoming a committee chairperson, so they might want to stay to have the power. If Republicans keep control of the Senate more of them might be willing to take a cabinet position. Younger ones would probably want to stay and not give up their seat.

Whatever the details, somewhere or somehow Jared secured money to pay for his 666 5th avenue building...and someone needs to make sure he goes to jail for this!

What Pete will want to get out of his role in the administration will be preparedness to have another tilt at President in four or eight years. Making him UN Ambassador just shifts him to the side. He needs either a prominent advisory role or a Cabinet position - if he doesn't run for office in 2024 he needs a guaranteed Cabinet position then. He also needs a role that will actively endear him to the black community if he does it well.
Are we counting Obama out because we know he doesn't want anything? He'd be an excellent SoS, or UN Ambassador. Alienated foreign allies would glomp back onto the US with magnetic speed.

Mayor Pete does not know Washington well, but has been a great surrogate for the campaign. I'd send him to the UN for now but bring him in for a replacement at State, Defense, or Intelligence after a year or two. Let him get some more foreign policy creds.

I adore Hillary and never apologize for it. But tactically it would not be a good idea to bring Hillary or Michelle or Barack into the Biden Administration. Joe is all about developing the next generation. Those three would take attention away from Joe and become lightning rods for media and Republican trash. Mayne of the people who ran in the primaries will get a second look, and really, after the decades Joe has spent in D.C. he will want a few insiders like Ron Klain close to him. Klain is smart, he is effective, he is respected. You won't find too many people as well thought of. Now I will bet Joe will ask Michelle to head up some special project. He may do the same with Hillary or BArack. But nothing that looks permanent. Plus I think that while Michelle & Barack are over Washington, they will want to be seen to serve when called on, so many Joe sends Barack to China to repair the mess Donnie made, and he sends Hillary to Europe for some short term special project. And he appoints Michelle the Nutrition and Fitness expert the way Reagan appointed Arnold Schwarzenegger. But the old guard is over for all intents & purposes.

They also need to be sanctioned for Hong Kong and their many other human rights abuses, which Joe already said he would do.

That article pretty much proves that she had nothing to do with Floyd's death:
In October 2006, Mr. Chauvin was one of six officers involved in the shooting of a man who had stabbed multiple people before turning on the police. Ms. Klobuchar, weeks away from being elected to the Senate, was still the prosecutor, but the case wasn’t heard until after she took the oath of office in Washington.
“Senator Klobuchar’s last day in the office here was December 31, 2006, and she had no involvement in the prosecution of this case at all,” said Lacey Severins, a spokeswoman for the Hennepin County prosecutor’s office, which encompasses Minneapolis.

(He might accept a Supreme Court position but there aren't any obvious ones in the near future and if Biden gets to pick one, he's going to pick a woman of color). And, the Clintons are persona non grata; Bill is damaged from his Epstein ties (have you seen or heard anything from Bill lately? There's a reason for that.)
