1. Sounds like a winner!

I say "Go for it Mr. President!" In the meantime, I'll get the popcorn popping.

We'd finally get that Department of Peace.

Or Van Jones or Jesse Jackson. Honestly...

19. Finally all the libertarian and teabagger republicans would flee the country!

The end of liberty in America: Only course of action now is to fight back, electoral politics not working

Well, to each his own. Some may choose to push secession in their state legislatures. Others may choose to leave the U.S. for good (Costa Rica, Switzerland, Italy, Argentina, Hong Kong, Israel). Still others may want to personally separate themselves from the United States here in North America while still living under communist rule' the Glenn Beck, grab your guns, food storage, build bunkers, survivalist route. I heartily endorse all these efforts.

18. Great suggestion...but I will give you another scenario...

How about Ambassador Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame!

The Good Old Party has a penchant for going after our strong Democratic Ladies. Look how well that has worked for them!

They tried to pulverize our now Senator Elect Elizabeth Warren. She is now in a position, on the Senate Banking Commission, to do great harm to there aspirations.

They again did it to Plame and now Rice. All strong Women! They tried to weaken them. They tried to destroy them. They failed!

They will be back to hammer the GOP. Hell hath no Fury like a Woman Scorned. No one knows scorn better than the GOP!

Better watch your back guys!

52. Jesse Jackson is the best suggestion for a "name" guy yet.

That is pretty good.

I still prefer jeweling up the bench and building credibility, maybe a Gavin Newsome. Who knows but I like the concept of building resumes more heavily than looking for them, especially in a second term. First term the brand names lend credibility that isn't as critical in the next go around.

Competence is crucial, name recognition becomes overrated but Jesse would be good stuff.

51. Actually, that's one place I almost wouldn't mind him.

I'm sure there are better choices though. He's great on his anti-war stance, but probably wouldn't be so good at diplomacy. He'd just cut everyone off and tell them to fend for themselves...

It's an awful job for someone with close family ties with young children. Too many days abroad!
