As much of the world watches transfixed over the train-wreck and incompetence of a Donald J Trump led transition, we wondered how the cabinet would be filled out if we only had the denizens of the REGJB to fill the posts.
Obviously Janet Reno as AG, since she was AG, so lets leave her out of it.
We'll start it off. Our appointment to the Supreme Court would be Ed Cowart, a gentleman, a scholar, and possessed of a razor sharp legal mind nestled in the old south genteelness of a different era.
Our second choice would be the late Circuit Court judge Michael Salmon, who was scholarly and always wanted to be an appellate court judge.
Lawyers, judges, past and present are all eligible. Have at it.
See you in court.
