Flournoy has for years been expected to take the Defense Department's top job. With Joe Biden now the president-elect, this may be her time.

Michèle Flournoy could become the first woman to run the Pentagon. Here’s what would change.

From the article:

That led to her confirmation in 2009 as undersecretary of defense for policy. There, she helped craft the plans for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and was seen as a major driver of the counterinsurgency strategy. [Italics and bold added]

In case you had some glimmer of hope, fuggeddaboutit. You ain't in The Club.
