The Transition Has Begun! As we begin to learn the names of Obama’s appointments, I thought it would be fun to make some predictions. Below is my list. I’ll fill in the actuals as they are revealed.
|State||I predict this pick will surprise us, no Kerry, no Richardson.|
|Attorney General||Janet Napolitano|
|Interior||It’d be nice to see a Native American in this slot, but I doubt it. No guess.|
|Energy||Chatters say Gore, but I disagree. No guess.|
Arguably as important a pick as any, given the state of disarray HS is in right now. No guess.
|Veterans Affairs||No guess.|
|National Sec. Counc. James Steinberg
|DNC Chair||Dean, then Plouffe|
