Presume if Michèle Flournoy ran for the oval office and manage to persuade the media and the public interest to vote for him, and after the inauguration, how would it play out differently under a Flournoy administration? Please, just please don't ask me why your thinking she couldn't able to nor have any interest to run for office. I just wanna know what are the results if this were to happen. Michèle Flournoy (born December 14, 1960) is the former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, the seventh-ranking official in the U.S. Department of Defense, and in that role served as a principal advisor to U.S. Secretaries of Defense Robert Gates and Leon Panetta from February 2009 to February 2012.
