Progressives Unveil Biden Cabinet Wish List; Biden Breaks His Most Vital Promise, and other Biden News

Progressives unveil Biden Cabinet wish list:
Two top progressive groups on Wednesday urged President-elect Joe Biden to fill his Cabinet with their allies, the most explicit effort yet for left-wing activists to influence the future 46th president's administration.
Justice Democrats and the Sunrise Movement, a group of youth climate change activists, pressed Biden to nominate progressives such as Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) to top posts and called on him to establish a White House Office of Climate Mobilization dedicated specifically to climate change.
“President-elect Biden must embrace this historic moment by keeping the party united and appointing progressive leaders who will help him usher in the most progressive Democratic administration in generations,” said Alexandra Rojas, executive director of Justice Democrats. “Progressives make up close to half the party in Congress and deserve representation in the next administration.”
The two groups highlighted their preferences for a number of climate-related posts, including Rep. Deb Haaland (D-N.M.), one of the first Indigenous women to serve in the House, to lead the Interior Department; Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) to serve as assistant to the president on climate mobilization; and Mustafa Ali of the National Wildlife Federation to be tapped as the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. --->READ MORE HERE
Biden breaks his most vital promise:
The first presidential debate seems like it was in another century. It took place only 44 days ago, give or take a few hours. The first match between President Trump and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden was loud, restless and cranky. But Mr. Biden did promise to do one thing during the event which is of interest at this very moment.
“Will you urge your supporters to stay calm while the vote is counted, and will you pledge not to declare victory until the election is independently certified?” moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News asked the Democratic nominee.
“Yes,” Mr. Biden replied.
“And here’s the deal. We’ll count the ballots. As you pointed out, some of these ballots in some states can’t even be opened until Election Day, and if there’s thousands of ballots, it’s going to take time to do it,” he continued.
No, really. Mr. Biden vowed to count those pesky ballots. --->READ MORE HERE
