If you could pick from the current Democratic candidates and put them in the following postions...

...who would you put in each position right now? Feel free to skip any you wish and add people that may or may not announce a run for the presidency. In other words, what would you ideally like to see the next government look like?

1. President
2. Vice President
3. Secretary of State
4. Secretary of the Treasury
5. Secretary of Defense
6. United States Attorney General
7. Secretary of the Interior
8. Secretary of Agriculture
9. Secretary of Commerce
10. Secretary of Labor
11. Secretary of Health and Human Services
12. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development
13. Secretary of Transportation
14. Secretary of Energy
15. Secretary of Education
16. Secretary of Veterans Affairs
17. Secretary of Homeland Security

Here is a helpful list from the New York Times: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/us/politics/2020-presidential-candidates.html

3. Here is my shortlist

 

I know that all my choices are not presidential candidates, but being a presidential candidate does not necessarily qualify for certain positions.

President Joe Biden
Vice president Kamala Harris or Eric Swalwell
Secretary of State Elizabeth Warren
Secretary of Defense John Kerry
US Attorney General Robert Mueller (Republican, but who does not trust or respect him?)
Secretary of Homeland Security Malcolm Nance

The other positions I left out will have to be determined later.

6. This really helps me to see all the people that percolate to the top.

 

Not just one individual. People's stars tend to rise and fall all throughout the campaign.
