Too early to be counting chickens, I'd say, but nonetheless the Great Mentioner, as Calvin Trillin once called him/her, has begun mentioning names as potential Clinton Cabinet appointees.

Here, Politico includes Washington lobbyist Blanche Lincoln as a potential Agriculture secretary. She was a U.S. senator from Arkansas and Senate Agriculture chair when what's-his-name defeated her in a re-election bid six years ago.
