Doesn't have to be every position, but who would you like to see get serious consideration?

AG: Trey Gowdy
Secretary of State: John Bolton
Secretary of Defense: Mike Flynn
Secretary of Treasury: I've heard Fiorina's name thrown around, I think that would be a very interesting choice
Homeland Security: I think this would be Giuliani's best bet
Health and Human Services: Ben Carson, I'm a fan of a physician being in this spot personally.

If he feels obligated to include Christie and Newt, I would do it in a more behind the scenes role. Even conservatives are not keen on having establishment types as the face of this administration.

A socialist as Treasury Secretary? I'd go with Mark Cuban or Charlie Crist, someone that's actually run a business or knows the financial industry.

No way to John Bolton, and even Rudy G...but especially no to Bolton. Neocon scum completely at odds with what Trump professed about not using our military as global police, and fighting unnessary wars like Iraq. Why do you think all those neocon turds got behind Hillary this year?

what is your opinion on all these sniveling little kids not having to take tests at colleges because they are to fragile, or having crying stations.....
My opinion is they better learn to toughen up, or life is going to be very bad for them.

Just don't appoint Ben Carson as "Secretary of Education".

Some people have much tougher lives than you or I and we would never know :shrug: The person next to you could be getting beaten by their partner daily, but they're good at hiding it, so you assume nothing. Do you not think that person deserves someone/some place to feel safe and discuss their situation?

Not if I have to pay for it

I have to think that he knows someone better than Fiorina for Treasury.
I heard a GolSachs guy - Italian surname IIRC

Also heard Giulliani for State, not Justice - a surprise - and Bannon for CoS

Newton will be in there somewhere.


How about Pat Buchanan for "bench coach" ? Like Zip Zimmer with Joe Torre.

You need to find a space for Senator Sessions as he will be in the running for multiple positions.

Here's an interesting tidbit - Rick Dearborn who is Senator Session's staff chief at his Washington office has been appointed "transition director". This is a big promotion and indicates that Sessions will have significant power in the Trump administration (which is a very good thing).

There's also been rumors that Kelly Ayotee, who lost her race to be Senator from NH AND was an outspoken critic of Trump, could be in the running for either Attorney General or Secretary of Defense. She has a very impressive resume and if picked by Trump would indicate that he values competency over loyalty.

There is nothing wrong in asking for help if you really need it. There is something very inherently wrong in assuming you are owed something you haven't earned.

What about Madame Skeletor, Ann Coulter ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ann_Coulter

After law school, Coulter served as a law clerk, in Kansas City, for Pasco Bowman II of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. After a short time working in New York City in private practice, where she specialized in corporate law, Coulter left to work for the United States Senate Judiciary Committee after the Republican Party took control of Congress in 1994. She handled crime and immigration issues for Senator Spencer Abraham of Michigan and helped craft legislation designed to expedite the deportation of aliens convicted of felonies. She later became a litigator with the Center for Individual Rights.

Here's a great analysis of why Trump won from Mike Rowe. You know the "dirty jobs" guy.

http://tribunist.com/news/mike-rowe-finally-weighs-in-on-trumps-victory-hillarys-supporters-wont-like-this/

I also agree with Instapundit https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/ that Trump should appoint this guy to head a group to encourage American's to take the jobs they supposedly won't take:

And Trump should take Rowe up on this offer: “I’ll make the same offer to President Trump that I did to President Obama – to assist as best I can in any attempt to reinvigorate the skilled trades, and shine a light on millions of good jobs that no one seems excited about pursuing.”
