An Adjustment to the Cabinet. 

Pandagon: Government in Waiting

Ezra Klein at Pandagon suggested what he calls a "shadow government." His idea is that Kerry should name his cabinet NOW and let them counter every statement Bush's cabinet makes move-for-move. Of course, since the actual cabinet needs congressional confirmation, these people would still be subject to republican review.

At any rate, several readers of the site chimed in that ex-military must be out of the service for ten years before being named secretary of defense. This effects my own pick of Lt. General Claudia Kennedy, so I am going to do a little reshuffling.

President John Kerry
VP Max Cleland
National Security Advisor Wes Clark
Sec. of State Lt. General Claudia Kennedy
Chief of Staff Gary Hart
Sec. of Homeland Security Al Gore
Sec. of Defense Leon Fuerth
Deputy Secretary of Defense Joe Wilson
Attorney General John Edwards
Surgeon General Howard Dean
EPA Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Fed Chair Paul Krugman

I had to remove Hillary from this list, but I'm certain there is a good position for her. Perhaps Management and Budget Director?
