So who do we think will be chosen for President Trump's cabinet? (it feels ludicrous even typing that)

No go. She's over the age of 30.

It's a clearly known fact that a woman's 1-10 rating drops off by each year she ages past 30. So even a 29 year old, solid 10 wouldn't be worth anything by the time she's 40.

Here's an article on-topic:

http://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/who-is-in-president-trump-cabinet-231071

Some of the choices are discouraging, like Sarah Palin and Sam Brownback (although the latter's selection would be a plus for Kansas).

Guys like Giulani and Christie may be flawed, but at least they're smart and experienced. I just hope he doesn't get too deep into weirdos.

Christie will be in jail or on trial before too long as it seems both sides in the recent trial stated under oath that he knew all about the bridge scheme.

I suspect we'll see Nosferatu (Giuliani) as Sec. Homeland Security. I would have expected Christie at AG, but his legal issues may preclude that. Probably Gen. What's his name? at Defense. THis is going to be ugly, now matter how it comes out.

Ha ... exactly.
 
From supporters who describe Trump and his campaign I'm seeing a lot of the same casual relationship with facts and what's real and true that has been its most definitive functional characteristic all along. That's going to be a problem.

I feel like crazies are going to be inevitable due to the polarization. For example, it would've been better if Kasich had agreed to be his running mate but that seems like it was a non-starter so we got Pence...

I wonder if Comey could serve as AG.

It will be good people who are willing to work to make things better.  That is my prediction.

Unfortunately they probably will have paid their nanny or house staff properly, including paying the social security tax.  They probably will not have past debts to the IRS either.  It will most likely be boring compared to 2008.

I would bet a large sum of money that the Attorney General will be different than the current person.

Yeah, that was unfortunate.
 
Of course Trump may be safer with Pence--mainly when he rewrites or just pulls out of too many campaign promises for the Lock her up! crowd.

Do preemptive pardons exist? If she hasn't been convicted of anything I'm not sure she can be pardoned. Further, I doubt she'd see the inside of a cell anyway. The real damage would be the conviction in the first place, pardon or no.

True.  But Nixon resigned because he knew he would be impeached and tried for election tampering.  He was concerned that he might be convicted, or at least have his name dragged through the mud (it was anyway).  The deal was he'd resign and Ford would pardon him.  Was it the best choice?  I don't know.  Maybe it was.

Too bad that Obama didn't choose a similar route after all of his crimes, plus Hillary, if elected, would never choose to do the right thing and resign. Chalk up another one for the leftist liberals.

Nixon's cover up is child's play considered to what we've been subjected to by Obama and Hillary.

So you are going to go back to before he was of age to find something?  You know that even a conviction at that time in Juvenile court would be over by now.

I thought you had something impeachable like treason or accidentally sending an e-mail to his private account that was later judged to have secure content.

I guess we're from very different generations.  Boys used to say "Yech, she's a GIRL and she has COOTIES" as a means to say they hate females.  Cooties are a small insect that usually infests scalps and does a fair amount of blood sucking.

I think given his expertise in traffic control on the George Washington Bridge, Christie should be Secretary of Da Fence ;-)

Given his feelings about coal and oil, Sarah "Drill Baby Drill" Palin should be Secretary of Energy.

And we can use Trump's wall building expertise to build a 20 foot dike around the coastal cities Evil

If Trump were still considering Christie for a Cabinet post, I think he'd be an ideal choice for Secretary of Transportation.  :D

My friends and I spent some time last week brainstorming possible appointments to Trump's Cabinet of Deplorables and came up with these additional ideas:

Secretary of Labor – Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.  His experience with union-busting and right-to-work legislation at the state level would fit right in with Trump’s business agenda at the Federal level.  The NRLB would be one of the first casualties of Walker’s tenure at the Labor Department.

Secretary of Homeland Security – this post could only go to FBI Director James Comey in gratitude for a hatchet job well done.

Secretary of Commerce – Carly Fiorina.  She’s not as adept at filing bankruptcy as Trump is, but she still did a thorough job of running Hewlett-Packard into the ground when she was chief executive there.

Attorney General – Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY).  As Senate Majority Leader, his refusal to perform his Constitutional duty of conducting confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominees makes him uniquely qualified to uphold the rule of law … as it applies to non-Republicans, anyway.

Secretary of State – Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).  It’s been said that people take an instant dislike to Cruz because it saves time.  As Secretary of State, he would excel at alienating our allies and infuriating our enemies.

I'd actually like to see an aggressive AG. I wonder if Comey would fit the bill. We could see once and for all if there's any fire behind all that Clinton smoke.

Because it's only been investigated a dozen times before by multiple groups without finding any criminal wrongdoing. Those of course weren't "real investigations" like Trump's would be. It would be the best investigation. So great. And would find so many things, all her things, that she did so wrong. I mean, she's crooked hillary.

Most recently, Trump has said he isn't looking to pursue any further investigations against Clinton. And no need. She's no longer much of a political rival, and they were purely political investigations. If he looks to go down that road, Obama can simply grant her a full pardon on his way out to slam that door shut.

Which is why we should wait until Trump is sworn in. What's wrong; you afraid they'll find something?

You mean in the 13th investigation that was the blatant smoking gun somehow never found in the first 12? No. Not unless it was planted by an investigation so in contempt of itself that it would seek to continue criminal investigations against a political opponent with no other evidence or motive than politics. 

However the tactic of using law enforcement and the justice system against political opponents is a tactic generally kept to the likes of african dictatorships. Some of us would like to keep it there.

Two way street, unfortunately. Dictators inhibit legitimate investigations of their cronies ala Obama and Lynch. Wonder how many tarmac meetings we'll see the new AG have with Killary.

Do you have anything to actually back up the claims against Obama and Lynch, or are you just taking the fake news stories you see hook line and sinker?

It's not a fake news story that the FBI granted immunity to Hillary's entire closest staff, then took possession of all their laptops, PCs too probably, and then didn't seek to have any of them turn on Hillary. In affect, destroying any key evidence that could have proven bad for Hillary. Yeah that kind of investigation. Others, she never answered any questions other than, I don't know, I don't remember, etc. blah blah blah.

So, if you consider that as true investigations, then I guess you're right. She has had her fair share of investigations. LOL!

The FBI treated Gen Patraeus a little differently, if I remember correctly.

OK.  Let's posit for a second that in fact there was some kind of collusion between DoJ and the Obama Administration.

If we find that is the case, what is the result?  The Presidency can't be repealed.  Any legislation passed has to go back through Congress.  Putting Obama or Hillary Clinton in jail won't undo anything they did.

This is a matter for Historians and the analysis of the future and not Chris Christie shouting "Lock Her Up".

What exactly is your point? Why would I want to "undo" anything they did? We don't just not prosecute crimes because they can't be undone... can murder be undone?

If we spend a large amount of your taxpayer dollars on prosecuting somebody there has to be a goal to the prosecution.  And some kind of cost-benefit evaluation of why we should prosecute. 

At this point Hillary Clinton is not going to run for President again -- she was already too old this year.  Her political career is done.  So prosecuting her and getting her outside of the Political arena is useless.

If you want to go after the Clinton Foundation, that's an entirely different thing.  Maybe you want to discount all the internal work they do and claim they just are a "piggy bank" for the Clintons like the Trump Foundation has already admitted they are for Trump there might be some money to be recovered.

We imprison murderers because we are concerned they might murder again.  What would you expect Clinton to do again?

Well, no. You kinda need a reason to investigate people. Some type of suspected wrongdoing with some type of based level evidence or indication.

Otherwise, it sounds like you just fling out baseless and inflammatory claims. Odd coming from the guy always asking, "do you have anything to support that claim?" though not surprising.

Ever hear of Rod Blagojevich?  He's spending a bit of time in the stir for his crimes.  What crimes do you think Hillary Clinton is guilty of besides being a Democrat and an Uppity Woman?

It's not an entirely different thing, it IS the thing we're talking about. Once again, we don't just prosecute people because they might do something again. Did we think Bernie Madoff was going to do it again? Do we think snowden would/could do it again? No, that's not how this works; that's not how any of this works.

What happy excrement of equine origin. All of Hillary's closest staff were granted immunity, which required they spill their guts of any and everything they could possibly have known. And, yet, even with all those guts on the floor, NADA, BUPKIS, ZERO, ZILCH, GOOSE EGG, NOTHING. Dusty, you post some really stupid crap sometimes, but this is definitely the stupidest.

Yup. unfettered, unfocused, unlimited, and unending until it comes up with something, anything!, or hillary dies. Just like the whitewater crap of bill's day that finally led to monica. INVESTIGATE YOUR ENEMIES UNTIL THEY BREAK OR GO TO JAIL!!!

Once someone is granted immunity, they are subject to contempt of court and/ or perjury charges should they refuse to cooperate. Don't remember any of them being so charged, so........

I love all the magical faith you suddenly develop for individuals to uphold any oaths they take in good faith. If only the left would embrace this ideology then they wouldn't have an issue with Trump!

Actually, most opponents of Trump (who aren't 'the left', as you well know) would be more worried that Trump would keep his word than that he wouldn't.

I know you're being snarky, but making america great again is a slogan, not a proposal. Most intelligent people would be less sanguine about the specific proposals he's made in service of that goal, which we hope he'll renege on.
