How about Bill Richardson for Sec. of State?

If I recall correctly, he was considered by Obama, who then picked Clinton. What does everyone think? I'd be good with it.

6. Wasn't it some kind of affair?

The President doesn't need a sex scandal.

9. That and some corruption was alleged - don't know how it panned out

but it did mean that he had to withdraw after being nominated for Secretary of Commerce. I would bet that even if there was nothing that led to an indictment, the fact that he obviously did not tell the WH that he had potential problems could make it very unlikely they would pick him.
