Are Biden supporters outraged Liz Warren won’t be treasury secretary and Janet Yellen will be?

Janet Yellen is a Keynesian, but I don’t think she has enough street cred with the progressive base. Right or wrong?

Janet Yellen has cred with both Republicans and Progressives. A good, experienced, steady hand. Smart pick.
See, this is what competent leadership looks like. Don't worry, it'll come back to ya! :)

Not really. She would have to give up Senate seat. Joe had said something to the effect that sitting Democrat Senators would be needed in the Senate. Why? Do you think she would be good at treasury?

You can keep your coverage....2500 dollars savings.............The Federal Reserve is the real ruler. Maybe for fun they will tank the economy.

She would have dropped her Senate seat in a minute for Treasury.

That's her dream job, outside of being President.

Certainly not Joe Biden
They'll throw a bone to the progressive base and appoint someone for HHS.

But the progressive base didn't get Joe Biden elected. They said all along that because he wasn't progressive enough, the country wouldn't vote for him.

And then they almost cost the Democrats the House.

Biden won because he swung moderates in the suburbs.

Had the Republican been pretty much anyone other than Trump, the Republicans would have won big.

She would have been OK, and yes, I am certain she would have been glad to get the nod of that position, but she knows the score and the current state of politics.

Nope, Warren would be wasted as Treasury secretary. She's good where she is.

Too bad. At least it would have gotten her lying ass out of MA. Baker probably would have taken her senate seat for himself until the next cycle.

She's a nightmare where she is and anywhere she might go. We missed a chance to get her the fuck out of the Bay State for a while. Off the reservation, if you will.

She's still qualified to hold any position having to do with banking and finance.

Once again Biden shows what a racist he is and goes with old and white.

She'll only last until Gropey Joey is safely in a laughing academy and President Harris (who you lefties really elected) takes over.

Anyone that thought Warren, a Democrat from a state with a Republican Gov, was going to get a cabinet seat while control of the Senate is balanced on a knife's edge, is a blithering idiot.

D.C. FOR SALE: Biden’s ‘Return To Normalcy’ Is Going To Be Terrible.

“After spending two years avoiding serious questions about his policy preferences, his team and his prospective presidency, we now know what Joe Biden intends to do should the Electoral College, as expected, vote for him in December: He’ll reopen the swamp for business.”​

THIS SEEMS LIKE A NO-BRAINER: Americans Shouldn’t Fund Communist China’s Armed Forces.

“Most of these firms are listed on Chinese stock exchanges, but at least two have subsidiaries trading on U.S. markets. Either way, investors are able to buy their shares through a variety of means. The amounts involved are stratospheric: One U.S. index fund, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, is tracked by at least $2 trillion. The index contains shares in many of the companies affected by the President’s executive order. Anyone who invests in the index or tracks it becomes a part-owner of those companies and helps fund their work with China’s military.”​

Not particularly. Yellen is very qualified.

She'll make a fine choice.
