"President-elect Joe Biden defied expectations last week with the announcement of long-time aide and foreign policy expert Antony Blinken as his nominee for secretary of state. Blinken isn’t a political celebrity, and his name may be new to many pundits, but he brings a wealth of experience at a critical time for the department.
With America’s reputation in tatters and our diplomatic service barely functional, can Blinken make American foreign policy great again?
If Blinken succeeds Mike Pompeo in January, he will inherit a State Department devastated by inattention and mismanagement and ravaged by years of double-digit budget cuts and career staff departures. At a time of growing global uncertainty, America’s Foreign Service – once a pipeline for bright young minds to enter the diplomatic corps – is near its smallest level in memory."
