The Obama Team

Ok, here are some predictions:

State--Anne-Marie Slaughter--Dean at Princeton IR school; smart, really smart.
Defense--Richard Danzig. A of the best.
AG--Eric Holder. Over-rated.
Treasury--Lawrence Summers. A genius, but he can't keep his mouth shut.
Commerce--Tim Kaine. Early support of BHO, delivered VA for Jim Webb and BHO.
National Security Advisor--Jim Steinberg. Deputy NSA under Clinton...another Pro.

which clinton and for what job? i don't see either one of them getting on the team. their luke-warm support gave the impression of being coerced. I doubt Obama needs either of them especially now that he is elected. Clinton (both of them) need him more than he needs either of them.

Defense is wrong. Will be Chuck Hagel.

You forgot Bill Ayers for Secretary of Education - sorry, I couldn't resist.

Seriously though CW, I know you and I have discussed this before, but I keep hearing pleas from both sides of the aisle to keep Gates on at Defense.

I'll throw this one in as a wildcard - Lieberman at State. I know he campaigned against him, but it would send a signal to Reid and Pelosi that BOH is his own man, and it fits within the whole conciliatory thing...
