Bernie Sanders Starts Bugging Biden About Big Job in White House
It’s time to pay up for that endorsement, Joe.
Nothing in life is free, and Joe Biden is about to learn that lesson in a big way.
In order for Biden to stand a chance in the 2020 election, he was somehow going to have to win over the radical leftists within the Democratic Party. They were, after all, the most vocal and fastest-growing demographic that the Democrats had, and shunning them again, (as they did in 2016), was likely to spell disaster for Biden’s election efforts.
What Joe Biden needed was to beat Bernie Sanders and somehow absorb his supporter base. In order to do that, he’d need a strong endorsement by Sanders – which he did receive.
But, again, nothing in life comes free, and Bernie Sanders is ready for ol’ Joe to pay up.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said on Wednesday that, if asked, he would accept the position of Labor secretary in President-elect Joe Biden’s administration.
“I want to do everything I can to protect the working families of this country who are under tremendous duress right now and whether that is in the Senate, whether that’s in the Biden administration, who knows? Let’s see how that unfolds,” Sanders said during an interview with CNN when asked if he was eyeing a position in Biden’s Cabinet.
“If I had a portfolio that allowed me to stand up and fight for working families, would I do it? Yes, I would,” Sanders said when pressed if he would accept a job as Labor secretary.
The pick would almost certainly see Sanders’ supporters come further back into the fold of the Democratic Party, but at the cost of driving away the moderates that may have handed Biden the election.
