VP: Bernie Sanders
Sec. State: Juan Cole

Defense: Lawrence Wilkerson
Attorney General: Loretta Lynch seems fine (need suggestions)
Interior: Robert Kennedy Jr.
Agriculture: Not sure
Education: Don't know but someone who supports Finland's style of education
Labor: Ed Schultz?? He seems like he would be a fighter but not sure.
Secretary of Housing and Urban Development: Gavin Newsom
Secretary of Veterans Affairs: Max Cleland
Homeland Security: Wes Clark (However I was not happy about what he recently said about internment camps for radicals??? That might give me second thoughts)
