So Kari’s post about who should be VPs got me thinking: how does Obama show he’s got the experience to match up with McSame? How about by naming his cabinet during the campaign? So here’s the idea ─ suggest who you’d put in the Obama Cabinet. One thing’s for sure: the GOP couldn’t touch the excitement of a democratic cabinet. Here’s some thoughts to kick this off…
State: Gov. Bill Richardson (NM) (former UN Ambassador and Energy Sec.)
Treasury: Mayor Michael Bloomberg (NY) (only nominally “R”)
Defense: Ex-Sen. Sam Nunn (GA) (only, we gotta finally let him have this…)
AG: Ex-Sen. John Edwards (NC) (my Veep choice, but he’s out of the running…or is he?)
HHS: Sen. Hillary Clinton (give her the job of fixing health insurance!)
Transportation: Rep. Earl Blumenauer (OR)
Homeland Security: can we disband this one?
What are your picks for these? For Agriculture, Interior, Commerce, Labor, HUD, Energy (shouldn’t this become Environment and Energy?), Education, Veterans’ Affairs?
