New York, Nov 28 (TIWN) The career bureaucrats are roaring back. When US President-elect Joe Biden formally introduces his national security team to the nation on Tuesday, it will signal a stark departure of Donald Trump-era theatrics and the return to power of what the Biden team likes to call "crisis-tested" subject matter experts who are expected to bring a more traditional style to governing.

Ivy League credentials, long years of Washington experience and the unmistakable stamp of the Obama years come as a package deal in the first raft of Biden’s staff picks. Biden, however, will be the first President since Ronald Reagan not to have an Ivy League degree at the undergraduate or graduate level.  The first reveal of Biden’s Cabinet also adds to a growing list of women and people of colour breaking historic barriers even as the President-elect stacks his A team to reflect multicultural America.
