    No, coraryan, you fell for the lies. Sandra wanted women students to be able to BUY into group insurance that covers their medical needs. There’s a subtle different you’re missing, only Rush said she wanted stuff for free. But all three of those nominees are more qualified than Sarah Palin or John Bolton. Let’s add Paul Krugman for Secretary of the Treasury while we’re at it.

    I was really confused by the judgement of the republican party when they nominated sarah palin to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.

    here we have a constitutionally qualified citizen, governor of a state, and then after being duly elected

    she just QUITS and walks away from her job.



    how could the GOP pick someone who would just quit being governor, for VP?

    and now when the try to distract the government from doing what we elected it to do, they are trying to make political points about the suitability of someone who hasn’t been nominated yet?

    These people are trying to run the country off of some kind of cliff.

    Don’t forget to consider Jane Fonda

    The president having Romney to lunch is a tradition that has been going on for decades. It amazes me how the cartoonists are seizing on this opportunity to keep the fires of divisiveness flaming…

    There’s nothing to prevent a non-citizen from being a cabinet member. Like Henry Kissinger or Madeline Albright, they are just not eligible for the line of succession.

    Both Kissinger and Albright are naturalized US citizen.

    Or Ted Bundy. Or Sam Berkowitz. Or John Wayne Gacy. Or Karl Marx. Or Timothy McVeigh. All of those people are in Obama’s close circle of friends, and he has already stated that all of them put together will help him become dictator and turn the country communist. I know it’s true; someone posted it on Facebook, and Rush corroborated it.

    Yes, but my point was that they were disqualified from being in the line of succession. There is, in fact, no constitutional requirement – such as age, residency or citizenship – that a Cabinet officer must meet, although, by tradition, appointments at the secretarial level must be confirmed by the senate before taking office.

    Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution states that

    “[The President] may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices.”

    In addition, the president may choose to include anyone who is not head of a department – typical examples are the Vice President, the UN ambassador and the National Security Advisor. Such non-departmental inclusions are not subject to senate confirmation for inclusion in the cabinet (although confirmation may be required for their appointment to their actual post). There’s nothing to prevent a president from including his college frat brother in the cabined and nothing Congress could do about it if he did. But such non-Secretarial appointments are also not included in the line of succession.

    In the 1970s, the National Lampoon ran a comic-book style story called Claude Brinegar, Secretary of Transportation in which the lowest man in the cabinet conspired to stack the cabinet with ineligible secretaries so that when Nixon was impeached he’d get the White House – he started with Kissinger.

    @runar

    I didn’t know that. I mentioned Bono because he is one of the most liberal people I could think of.

    Boys, boys……let’s not resort to acting like members of Congress. It’s unbecoming.

    OH YES PLEASE! Make Michael Moore the Secretary of Defense! The rotation of the earth would slow a bit, given the momentum (speed*mass) at which the troops would leave Afghanistan…
