Do Biden’s Appointments Foretell A Centrist Agenda?


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with RJ Eskow about President-Elect Joe Biden's nominees.

The uneasy alliance between progressives and liberals to elect Joe Biden in order to defeat Donald Trump is already fraying. Barely has Biden been declared president-elect when he appears ready to push progressives out the door with his announcements of numerous problematic figures for key cabinet positions.

Rahm Emanuel, former Obama White House chief of staff and Chicago Mayor, is a strong contender for Transportation Secretary. But Emanuel is notorious for pushing a center-right agenda on issues of criminal justice, climate, public education, healthcare, and more.

Richard “RJ” Eskow, host of The Zero Hour, a weekly TV and radio program, and a Senior Advisor for Health and Economic Justice at Social Security Works.
