Dream Team

After electile dysfunction climaxes in inauguration, #44 will need a cab fully stocked with super smart cats who can best handle events, opportunities and any manufactured crisis.

"He’ll need his country’s brightest minds—not his party’s usual

Foreign Policy asked 10 of the world’s top thinkers to name the unlikely team that can best guide the new pres through the turbulent years ahead.

Fancy Bill Ayers at Education? Louis Farrakhan as ambassador to Libya? John Bolton at State? Hillary Clinton, Warren Buffet or Steve Forbes at the Treasury?

How about Jamie Gorelick as Nat'l Intell Director?

Check out the picks - plus Foreign Policy gives you a chance to design and submit your very own especial cabinet picks. And you also get a 'bonus' pick.

GsGf (with mostly write ins) selected Kenneth Pollack as National Security Council, General Michael Hayden as Nat'l Intell Chief, kept Robert Gates at Defense, State went to Robert Kagan and the Treasury to Mitt Romney.

The bonus pick was Samantha Power to the UN.

Take a sec and submit your own - and share your faves!

I don't know girlfriend. Surely they can do better than that. I liked your picks though. I'd like to see Bolton as Sec. of Defense, Romney as Sec. of the Treasury, Guiliani maybe for Homeland Security, pull completely out of the UN. I'd like to burn down the State Department. If Ayers can bomb it, surely "we the people" can burn it down and start over," (just kidding, of course).

(Actually the building they bombed is not the current building)

Well, it's after midnight. I'm giving it up.

There must be a place for Lynn Forster Rothschild somewhere in the Admin. What a champ she is.

As long as it isn't an Obama cabinet I'm ok with it right now.

You know, I started reading the post with a postive attitude launched by the pic and ended with a churning stomach thinking about an Obama cabinet.

Of course, he could go the Hollywood route with Toby McGuire as Secretary of Spandex, Ben Affleck as Secretary to Matt Damon an Oprah as Secretary Supreme --mother of all things holy.

I propose me as Secretary of Abolishing Most of the Cabinet. A vain, but all too typical move on my part.

I agree....an Obama cabinet gives me painful rectal itch, and nothing else. I remember Carter I all too well, when the nation was impotent abroad, and inept at home. Carter II, in the age of Islamofascism, is not a comforting thought, especially with a bunch of radicals and socialists undercutting our defense and our conservative voices. And mark my words....they'll do their despicable best to do both.

What about John Bolton????? That guy deserves some important spot. Maybe Secretary of State? No he's to honest for that position. Secretary of Defense. That's the one for him.
