The Obama cabinet

Posted By on Thu, Nov 20, 2008 at 8:57 AM

Penny Pritzker to Commerce secretary. Local note: Her brother, J.B. Pritzker, another member of the billionaire Chicago family, gave $25,000 to the Arkansas lottery campaign. Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano to Homeland Security.

PS -- I'm really hoping for Hillary Clinton to land secretary of state, for a purely petty reason. The cable TV shouters and the harrumphing commentariat -- Broder, Dowd, Friedman, etc. -- will have a stroke. Why, many of them (Chris Matthews particularly) as much as suggested last night that a Clinton appointment would betray all of those who, like them, worked so hard to defeat the bitch and her scheming spouse.

UPDATE: Forget Pritzker. She's out.
