02/04/2004 Entry: "Eric A on Shadow Cabinets"

"Shadow Cabinet, Take I.

"I’ve been giving the idea of a shadow cabinet some thought and I think it’s a neat idea. Of course, it would create problems; not everyone could be fully vetted and some changes might be necessary over time. The Clinton people had a hellova lot of trouble picking their cabinet and pretty much screwed up the early part of the presidency in doing so. (If only Powell had accepted Secretary of State, then Christopher would have had to take AG. No Zoey Baird. No Kimba Wood. Damn fewer problems with gays in the military.) Anyway, the idea would be to announce a shadow cabinet that would function as a cabinet, but be subject to revision later, depending on availability, changes, stuff. But it would take the focus off the “personality” and give the media something to write about other than who was the inspiration for 'Love Story.'

"Speaking of a hypothetical Kerry/Edwards or even Edwards/Kerry ticket, here are a few shadow suggestions. I am excluding all senators from the list because I think it would be silly for the Democrats to give up any seats when they are already outnumbered.

"Secretary of State: Wesley Clark or Anthony Zinni, if Clark is on the ticket.
Adviser for National Security: Anthony Zinni if he’s not Secretary of State
Secretary of Defense: Max Cleland
Chairman of the Federal Reserve: Joseph Stiglitz
Director of the CIA: Joseph Wilson
Secretary of the Treasury: Laura Tyson
Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers: Paul Krugman
Attorney General: Elliot Spitzer
Secretary of the Interior: Gary Hart
UN Representative: John Lewis
Ambassador to Niger: Paul Wolfowitz
Ambassador to Mars, George W. Bush
Ambassador to Venus, Ralph Nader.
Chairman of the Democratic Party: Howard Dean"
