The president of George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, Patrick Gaspard, will retire, opening the path for him to take a potential spot in the Biden administration. Gaspard, who has served on the Hungarian-born billionaire’s foundation for three years, stated Friday that he will resign at the end of the year, Open Society said. Gaspard formerly served as U.S. envoy to South Africa between 2013 and 2016 in the Obama administration. Before that, he served as administrator of the White House Office of Political Affairs.

He has past knowledge of labor unions -- having worked for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU.) In a statement, Gaspard said he wants to re-enter politics to maintain “the struggle against oppression everywhere.” “Fundamental social change doesn’t customarily occur in a revolutionary moment. Instead, what is needed is the partnership of activists, government, and the nonprofit sector, collaborating over time and space in unity and solidarity,” he said. "This is what I worked to do at Open Society. My commitment now will be to re-enter the world of politics and ideas, where I can continue the struggle against oppression everywhere.” Soros, a left-wing donor, endorsed Gaspard as a “champion of all rights: whether for workers, for women, or for underserved groups.” “His dedication to those challenging powers is precisely why I invited Patrick to join Open Society,” he said. “I have great admiration for the way he led the Foundations in a world beset by illiberalism, and I applaud him.” [tweet_embed]December 7, 2020[/tweet_embed] Biden, along with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris have increased their support for controversial director of the Office of Management and Budget nominee, Neera Tanden. Tanden, a Hillary Clinton loyalist and CEO of the left-leaning Center for American Progress, has attracted wrath from conservative Republicans and progressive Democrats as one. After a lifetime of serving the Democratic Party, Joe Biden has no fixed beliefs. He can't have any; the party has changed too much. [tweet_embed]December 7, 2020[/tweet_embed] Joe Biden became a Democrat back when Democrats represented America's working-class wage earners, heavily Catholic and concentrated in the big cities and industrial states. Democratic voters of that era tended to be populist on fiscal matters --they liked Social Security and Medicare -- but they were essentially conservative on social issues. They believed in biology, and most of them got married and went to church. [tweet_embed]December 7, 2020[/tweet_embed] That's the world Joe Biden grew up in. His "Joe from Scranton, son of a coal miner" thing is a reminder from that era. He still takes it out occasionally at events, but only for sentimental reasons. After all, 1962 seems like yesterday. But in fact, it was a long time ago. That Democratic Party has been extinct for decades.
