Although the Democratic primary season is far from over, former vice president Joe Biden’s sharp surge to take control of the race has led his confidants to express confidence and start talking about who would be best for his vice presidential pick and even cabinet posts, sources told "Axios on HBO” on Monday.

One of the major thoughts concerning the vice presidential choice is to bring diversity to the ticket, and some Biden advisers believe Sen. Elizabet Warren could be the answer both as a female candidate and to enthuse party progressives.

Also high on the list for his running mate are several African Americans, most prominent among them Sen. Kamala Harris and Sen. Cory Booker, who both ended their presidential bids early in the race, as well as former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who excites crowds.

Biden advisers also have in mind a “Return to Normal plan” to reverse what they consider President Donald Trump's unorthodox, improvisational style and to emphasisze governing, norms and restoring alliances, as well as respect for experts, and to send a signal of stability.

Officials stressed to Axios that this thinking is still in the early stages.

It also would mean staffing the White House with what they consider known qualities, which could include John Kerry, who reportedly would relish a new Cabinet position devoted to climate change; Mike Bloomberg, who would be a top possibility to head the World Bank; and Sally Yates, the deputy attorney general in the Obama administration who stood up to Trump and was fired, as a leading contender for attorney general.

Biden advisers also expect former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg to receive a prominent position as a UN ambassador or U.S. trade representative.
