even I admit that is a feat...i am scared for the country but it is cool... and i also love that trump beat barack's record!




It was expected that Obama's record would be beat. Every election the voter count gets higher. The thing about past elections is that voter turnout has been low or at least average. Voters on both sides were definitely energised for the 2020 election rolleyes and so yes, Obama's record would get beaten. Some day, maybe at the next election, Biden's will fall. But Trump beating Obama's vote number is not exactly something to get excited about when it was expected.



At least Obama wasn't a one term president lol

[b]Biden eyeing Cindy McCain for UK ambassador position: report]/b]
Jordan Williams 8 hrs ago



President-elect Joe Biden is reportedly eyeing Cindy McCain to serve as ambassador to the U.K., according to multiple reports citing The Times of London.

McCain, the widow of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), has been a vocal critic of President Trump and endorsed Biden during his campaign. She is a known Anglophile, the Independent noted, and is thought to be a front-runner in return for helping Biden flip Arizona.

"It's hers if she wants it," a source told the Times. "She delivered Arizona. They know that."

The Hill has reached out to Biden's transition team for comment.

Biden became the first Democrat to win Arizona since 1996. Some Democrats say it was endorsements from McCain and former Sen. Jeff Flake - two respected Republicans from the state - that pushed Biden over the top.

The two Republicans, who both said that Biden would restore civility and honor to the White House, have been floated for Biden administration posts, with McCain possibly serving as a top ambassador or in another diplomatic post.

Biden announces all-female senior White House communications team
By Kate Sullivan, CNN
Updated 7:20 PM ET, Sun November 29, 2020



“President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on Sunday announced an all-female White House senior communications team.

"I am proud to announce today the first senior White House communications team comprised entirely of women. These qualified, experienced communicators bring diverse perspectives to their work and a shared commitment to building this country back better," Biden said in a statement.”


Jen Psaki, who was President Barack Obama's White House communications director, will serve as White House press secretary.


Kate Bedingfield, who served as deputy campaign manager and communications director for the campaign, will be White House communications director.

Pili Tobar, who served as the communications director for coalitions on the campaign, will serve as deputy White House communications director.

Karine Jean-Pierre, a senior adviser on the Biden campaign who later served as chief of staff to Harris, will serve as principal deputy press secretary.


Symone Sanders, a senior Biden adviser on the campaign, will serve as a senior adviser and chief spokesperson for the vice president.

Ashley Etienne, a senior adviser on the Biden campaign, will serve as communications director for the vice president.

Elizabeth Alexander, a Biden campaign senior adviser, will serve as communications director for first lady Jill Biden.


These seven women, several of whom are women of color, will occupy some of the most visible roles in the administration.
Harris, who will make history as the country's first female vice president, described the newly-announced team as "experienced, talented, and barrier-shattering."

Biden moves quickly to build a diverse administration

By Gregory Krieg and Devan Cole, CNN
Updated 7:17 AM ET, Mon November 30, 2020


Washington (CNN)”President-elect Joe Biden has repeatedly promised to build a government that "looks like America." He's not wasting any time in delivering on that front.

Biden has moved quickly to name a diverse group to key White House and Cabinet posts.

On Sunday night, he unveiled an all-female senior communications staff and is expected to roll out a diverse group to lead his economic team this coming week.
The incoming administration is taking shape as the outgoing one has sought to undermine both its legitimacy and ability to deliver on many of Biden's campaign pledges. But the President-elect's early picks are, in themselves, a promise kept -- and provide a stark contrast to those of President Donald Trump, who, despite his appointment of women and minorities to some key positions, assembled a largely White and male group during his nearly four years in office. The heavy presence of Obama alumni in Biden's team also signals continuity from the last Democratic administration.”

If nominated and approved by the Senate, Tanden would one of America’s top financial policy makers, responsible for writing a federal budget that meets the goals of the new administration.

Tanden worked in the Clinton and Obama administrations and now leads the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank. But before she ascended to such lofty positions, Tanden made her mark as the daughter of Indian immigrants who grew up in Bedford, a town northwest of Boston.”

Apparently she is not well liked in the Republican-controlled Senate. It's thought that she will be the sacrificial lamb in order to make nice with the Senate Republicans.

Biden, Harris form inaugural committee

By QUINT FORGEY
11/30/2020 09:38 AM EST

“President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on Monday announced the formation of a Presidential Inaugural Committee ahead of their swearing-in on Jan. 20.

The senior leadership of the committee, which will be responsible for organizing inauguration-related activities, consists of CEO Tony Allen and executive director Maju Varghese.

(Edited for compliance)

In their statement, Biden’s inaugural team said the committee would “work closely with the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies … to coordinate all activities surrounding the 59th inaugural ceremonies, prioritizing keeping people safe and preventing the spread of COVID-19 while engaging all Americans.”

It remains unclear how the ongoing coronavirus pandemic will affect planning for the inauguration in less than two months, as public health experts warn of surging caseloads during the holiday season.”

Biden weighs history-making picks for defense secretary

By Jeff Zeleny, Senior Washington Correspondent
Updated 8:39 AM ET, Mon November 30, 2020



(CNN)”President-elect Joe Biden is entering the month of December weighing several barrier-breaking candidates to be his Secretary of Defense.

Three candidates are in final contention to lead the department,
people familiar with the matter tell CNN, with veteran Pentagon official Michèle Flournoy, former Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson and retired Army general Lloyd Austin all still being considered. Johnson and Austin, who are African-American, would be history-making nominees as the first Black Secretary of Defense. So, too, would Flournoy, as the first woman to run the Pentagon.”
