There are lots of reports and speculation on who The Donald is going to choose for his Cabinet. Taking the news reports and my own thoughts into account, The Crawfish presents for your perusal and discussion my picks:
Press Secretary: Although not a Cabinet position, it is a very important position. I suggest the Talkmaster himself (he’s currently retired and available) Neal Boortz.
Chief of Staff: This person must know how to deal with all of the Administration and Congress, pushing through the President’s agenda. Nobody is more qualified than Newt Gingrich.
State: Former UN Ambassador John Bolton. Period. End of statement.
Defense: Lots of names being thrown about here, but many see the front runner to be Alabama’s Senator Jeff Sessions to be the pick. I will throw in a bonus pick here, with Allen B. West for Secretary of the Army.
Veterans Affairs: We need a bull in the china shop here. One who won’t take any BS. General James Mattis USMC (ret) is my pick.
Health and Human Services: Dr. Ben Carson
Homeland Security: Rudy Giuliani or Sheriff David Clarke
Attorney General: Lots of possibilities here, and my top three are Giuliani, Governor Chris Christie, or Rep. Trey Gowdy. A darkhorse here is Senator Ted Cruz.
Interior: The head of Lucas Oil has been talked about, but this is the spot for a woman liberals detest, Governor Sarah Palin.
Agriculture: Governor Rick Perry
National Security Advisor: Duncan Hunter Sr. (former Congressman and father of Rep. Duncan Hunter Jr.)
Director of National Intelligence: Former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency LtGen Mike Flynn.
Treasury: Steve Mnuchin
Energy: Harold Hamm
Housing and Urban Development: Pam Patenaude
EPA: Myron Ebell
Labor: Victoria Lipnic
Commerce: Wilbur Ross
Education: Dr. Carson had been mentioned a couple of months ago, but William Evers is the front runner.
The first 2 SCOTUS picks: Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee
