Hillary as Secretary of State and Cabinet Taking Shape for Obama

Posted by alhavakia on November 22, 2008

Obama is moving swiftly to fill out his Cabinet and White House Staff. Without missing a beat, he’s making his list and checking it twice – Christmas has come early for P. Elect Obama. But, will America get a stocking filled with Coal? (An Industry Obama considers to be ‘dirty’ and wants to Bankrupt.)

While it is not yet official, Hillary Clinton has decided to give up her Senate seat and accept the Secretary of State position. Clinton said through a spokesman – discussions were on track for her appointment, but final arrangement had not been made.
 
President-elect Barack Obama will likely name Timothy Geithner, [president of the New York Federal Reserve] his Treasury Secretary.
 
Eric Holder, Obama’s choice for Attorney General, held the No. 2 slot in the Justice Department in President Bill Clinton’s administration [this is the third critical post as the president-elect rounds out his top Cabinet picks].
 
Lawrence Summers, a former Treasury Secretary [and one-time Harvard University president] is being considered as an Economic Adviser.
 
Economic posts also seemed likely for Austan Goolsbee and Jason Furman, Obama’s top two economic advisers during his campaign.
 
New Mexico’s Governor, Bill Richardson, a likely pick for Commerce Secretary
 
Other Likely Cabinet selections:
Former Senate Majority Leader, Tom Daschle of South Dakota – Secretary of Health and Human Services
Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano – Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security
Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas – Secretary of Labor
Obama also is filling out the ranks of his White House staff:
Patrick Gaspard – Political Director, he was Obama’s national political director during the general election campaign, and has long ties to labor.
Jackie Norris – Chief of Staff to first lady Michelle Obama
Catherine M. Russell – Chief of Staff to Vice President-elect Joe Biden’s wife, Jill Biden
Cynthia Hogan – as Counsel to the Vice President
Moises V. Vela Jr. – Director of Administration for the VP
I’m not sure what my take is yet, and only time will give us accurate answers, but I welcome your take on P. Elect Obama’s potential Cabinet and Staff. Please weight in and share your thoughts or any additional facts you might have. All comments abiding by TOS will be published.
