The Trump Cabinet Takes Shape

It sounds more and more like Donald Trump is going the Doris Kearns Goodwin “Team of Rivals” approach to the Presidency.

Last night it was confirmed that retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn will be the national security advisor.

I’m hearing that Jeff Sessions is a lock for the Attorney General position.

I’m also hearing that Nikki Haley does not want the Secretary of State position so much as her Lieutenant Governor, Henry McMaster, is desperate to get Governor Haley out of South Carolina so he can be Governor without having to withstand a primary. McMaster was an early Trump supporter.

If Sessions is AG and not Secretary of Defense and Haley is not Secretary of State, suddenly the stakes have gotten a lot higher for the meeting with Mitt Romney this weekend.
