    I think itís the best way to leverage his management skills and raise his profile with more experience at a high level. I have no doubt he could do the job, and heís not the worst operator in a divided government. Especially given the scope of the job being mostly about managing the pandemic and coordinating with local government entities in that effort right out of the gate.

    Yeah. If Pete has big time aspirations, sitting in a cabinet position for 4+ years isnít going to do it. Do something for a year or so and go from there. Anything in Indiana is going to be very tough. Getting a national profile will help.

    We donít need to bosides this shit. We can call it bad without comparing it to Devos (which is still way way worse).

    Is that even something you have to hope for? Aside from Trump himself, I can't imagine many people worse that Pruitt in that position.

    Heís not qualified for that. I could definitely see VA though. Wherever he ends up, he will permanently be on Sunday talk shows.

    Yeah, I'd like someone with some foreign relations experience at Defense. VA would be good for Pete, I think.

    Ok, so I was kidding about Mayor Pete at DoD. I think heíd be great in a very public role and Iíd like to see him get more foreign policy experience. Maybe start him at the UN for 2 years then promote him. VA is too secluded for him...he is great in front of cameras and responding on the fly to questions.
    Birds are real.

    That job killed Leo McGarry

    That Politico list is turrible- i hope itís a joke. Meg Whitman shouldnít be running a local school board. I like Porter for Senate / Schiff for AG

    There are 92 definitions for "SOD" that don't mean grass. Which one are you intending here?

    It almost killed him. It was running for VP that finally got him.
