1. Geithner and Duncan are my main concerns

Get those two fucking assholes out of there. The rest I can mostly stomach. Not a huge Holder fan but I don't actively hate him like I do Geithner and Duncan.

For Treasury I'd prefer someone not beholden to Wall Street. For Education I'd prefer someone who actually believes in the public education system and doesn't blame teacher's unions for the ills of said system.

2. I'd get rid of Salazar

 

Geithner and Holder should go, they are idiots.

4. Vilsack and Duncan - definitely out. Replace Vilscak with Wendell Berry or Joel Salatin.

5. Keep Labor, DHS, Transportation, Veterans Affairs, and Energy. Everybody else ranges

 

from incompetent to counter-productive (except Clinton, but she doesn't want it anymore).
