Meet our Next President: Ron Klain
« on: November 11, 2020, 07:10:56 pm »
Ron Klain will be Biden's chief of staff which in case Biden's mental faculties are failing him then he will be looking to Ron to "guide" him. Which means if Biden is experiencing cognitive decline then Ron will be running the country. You'll be comforted to know he was the Ebola czar back in 2014.

Biden will do what Bush did well, which is to fill the room with more capable people than yourself, so that you can delegate as required.

Yes, but the president must be capable of making lucid decisions. With cognitive decline comes the inability to consider all of the facts. As Biden chooses decision C his chief of staff will ask people to leave the room and then tell Biden he can't choose C because it would infuriate the Left (as an example). At some point Biden will get more confused and either insist on some very bad decisions or will ask Ron what he thinks he should do -- effectively making Ron Klain the next president of the US. Many people might think that Kamala will have that role, but my guess is that Biden will give her her own Ukraine issue to focus on while he attends to the job of being president.
