    The GOP isn’t going to filibuster cabinet appointments. If they do, the Dems will simply change the rules. You really don’t want to go there when you don’t have numbers and likely won’t have them until 2020 at the earliest (if you get them then).

    most of them, no they won't, but if Hilly decides to outright slap them in the face by appointing Rice-O-Baloney that may well change the equation.

    Hillary shouldn't concede to rightwing propaganda in making her picks

    well, we can look at it that way or we can stop to think about whether or not it makes any sense to pick a fight over this when there are other people available.

    that's what obama did with healthcare, just said fuck em, we don't need em, elections have consequences, blah, blah, blah and the result of that 'my way or the highway' shit has been years of completely dysfunctional government.

    if she wants to go that route, fine, but then neither she, nor anyone on the left, should turn around and bitch when we get more of the same dysfunctional nonsense we've been watching for the last several years.

    The President should be allowed to pick her own cabinet. That is the way it works

    I never said she couldn't pick anyone she'd like, including this hack, however, IMO, this would be a stupid choice that would very likely be seen as an overt slap in the face and result in an equally overt war with the Pubs that would carry beyond this for little, if any, political gain that I can see.

    That's the reality. If she doesn't want to deal with that then it isn't only Trump that likes to live in their own reality.

    And she can appoint anyone her little heart desires but they have to be confirmed. THAT is the way it works.
