Speculation on a McCain cabinet
Edited on Mon Feb-18-08 10:08 AM by DesertRat
Some common guesses envision well-known McCain allies and even past rivals in key positions:

Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., in a prominent job, possibly even secretary of State.


Former Sen. Fred Thompson, R-Tenn., as attorney general.


Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani as Homeland Security secretary.


Former Sen. Phil Gramm of Texas as Treasury secretary.


Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee as Health and Human Services secretary.

10. Charles Keating as Treasury Secretary. Yeah, I know he's dead, but Bush III doesn't--witness:


I think Mr. Keating is speaking to him right from the, er, um, heart, shall we call it? :evilgrin:

11. I think Keating is still alive
He would be perfect for Bush III's Treasury Secretary.
