Take, for example, Biden’s pick for Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, which was formally announced on Tuesday. After working on Bill Clinton’s National Security Council, Blinken, 58, a graduate of Harvard University and Columbia Law School, became Biden’s chief foreign policy adviser in the Santa Cardi B there’s some hoes in this house Christmas sweater Senate in 2002, serving as the Democratic staff director of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee when Biden was that committee’s chairman, and then worked as adviser on Biden’s unsuccessful presidential bid in 2008. After Barack Obama picked Biden as his vice-president, Blinken returned to the White House as Biden’s national security adviser. (A blue-shirted Blinken can be seen at the back of the room in the famous photograph of White House officials, including President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, monitoring the 2012 raid that killed Osama Bin Laden.) And government service runs in the family: Blinken met his future wife, Evan Ryan, in 1995 when he was working at the White House as a speechwriter on the National Security Council, and she was a scheduler for first lady Hillary Clinton.
