More On President Obama's Cabinet

A couple of days ago, I had a good time suggesting personnel for the Obama Cabinet. I made it as ridiculous as possible in an effort to get in some cheap laughs.
A friend of mine sent me this link today, and after further research, I'm afraid that it is legit. Banish children from the room before clicking on the link. Take off your glasses before clicking on the flow chart. Move all drinks away from your keyboard.

Al Gore as potential "Climate Czar"?
John Kerry as Secretary Of State?
Colin Powell, who is experienced at State and Defense, in Education?
Dick Gephardt and Tom Daschle as anything at all?
Caroline Kennedy at the U.N.?
Howard Dean at Health And Human Services?

Max Cleland and Larry Summers are good folks.

But Lord have mercy, what a crew.
I think my list would do less harm....

Climate Czar? We're perilously close to not so much an Orwellian dystopia, but rather a Pythonesque dystopia.

How far away are we from having an actual "Ministry of Silly Walks"?

Tarrant, at least we will be able to laugh through our tears. "I think she is dead". "No I'm not" (they continue to beat her)

WS - I know it will pain you to learn the Obama folks are also entertaining the idea of Hillary for Secretary of State.

Perhaps it is just my socialist/commie world view, but none of the choices you list seem that outlandish. After some of the nit-wits in the Bush cabinet this bunch seems positively sterling.

Sorry, I just don't see the outrage here.

You are exactly right.
But what pains me is that we have 300 million people to choose from.

Charlie Rose interviewed Al Hunt the other night, and Hillary's prospects came up. Hunt didn't give the idea much credence.
I think if she's under even remote consideration for a cabinet post, it's just so they don't have to deal with her grandstanding in the senate.

He ought to get her and John McCain in his cabinet. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer (not that either of these illustrious senators is his enemy, mind you).
