    Joe Biden will name Tony Blinken as his Secretary of State, Bloomberg reported on Sunday night, as speculation mounted that Michele Flournoy would be announced the first female Secretary of Defense, and Linda Thomas-Greenfield named as UN ambassador. Blinken, 58, is currently Biden's foreign policy adviser, and Biden's appointing of his Cabinet members will likely infuriate Donald Trump, who has insisted that the election is not yet settled. His appointment will also disappoint Susan Rice, who was considered a front-runner for the job.  The New York-born international relations expert was Barack Obama's deputy Secretary of State from 2015 until the inauguration of Donald Trump, in January 2017. Prior to that Blinken served as Obama's Deputy National Security Adviser starting in 2013, and was part of Biden's own advisory team as the National Security Adviser for the Vice President from 2009 to 2013. He was part of the Obama-Biden transition team...
