    Not bad but I'd put Rev. Wright in as Secretary of State. The rest of the world hates us, why not have a Secretary of State who feels the same way.

    I'm not sure. I heard Kerry is being considered for Sec'y of State. He'd be a good choice. As far as Treasury goes, it will be a safe and responsible pick that Wall Street is okay with -- maybe someone like Larry Sumners or Paul Volcker. I wonder if he'll offer Health & Human Services to Hillary, but I'm not sure she'd want it. Sec'y of Defense is a curious one -- Colin Powell would be an obvious choice or perhaps Wesley Clark. But, really, I have no idea who he's going to choose, especially since change was his mantra. I think he'll bring in a number of well known but new faces.

    Good guesses all.

    I'd lean with Ayers as the Homeland Security and Father Phleger as the Education. Just as hunch.

    I don't see Hillary being asked to be a member of Obama's administration. Supposedly, there is alot of bad blood between the 2 camps.

    Obama is very smart. I think his picks will be "safer picks". Either unknowns, or left center people. He knows if he was to pick radicals he would have alot of people who voted for him turn fairly quickly. And adding a terrorist like Ayers to his cabinet would have some unimaginable consequences for the democratic party.

    Anybody actually going to discuss this seriously?

    Wright, Ayers, Farrakan are not going to be part of the administration.

    Kerry would be bad for Secretary of State. Think about it. What gets him into trouble
    all the time? Saying stupid things that tick people off. Not good for a diplomat.

    I've got the perfect name for this whole "New White House Staff" but I can't post it, the Slobberers & Blubberers on here would be demanding my resignation and would want me bansihed for life and beyond.

    I don't know if Edwards is out of the running. He cheated on his wife. So did Bill Clinton and John McCain. I can't image that being a litmus test for being in the administration. Are the republicans going to block his nomination on the basis of expensive hair cuts?

    Plus there is a risk of grabbing to many current house and senate members. Obama and Biden will be resigning. Lieberman can't be counted on. Grab a couple more and the senate majority could shrink to a very thin margin depending on how special elections/appointments go. Edwards doesn't cost the democrats a seat.

    McCain did the same damn thing. It is a non-issue. If you think the republicans actually would fight over this, then Obama should send Edwards nomination to the senate first let the repubs burn what little political capital they have on filibuster over nothing and get most of America even more pissed at the republicans for being obstructionists.

    Look I think Edwards would make a great sec of labor. But these guys are trying to start a fresh clean administration and this would look bad real bad to the general public. They out cry might be so great that Joebama might be forced to dump him which would look like they were incompeteant for picking him in the first place.
