From Overtime :
Should Joe Biden hire Republicans? And what can he learn from Harry Truman? I fully expect at least one cabinet slot will be a Republican. As they say in South Park: As is tradition . Biden would be smart to reach across the aisle, but the question is who would he pick? Here’s Eli Lehrer, president of the R Street Institute in Washington Monthly:
Biden can do a lot to advance his agenda not by picking token Republicans to serve as window dressing in cabinet slots but should, instead, pepper his administration with a few Republican-leaning advisors who want to help him heal a riven nation.
