Having a medical doctor who ran a business re-write Obamacare is brilliant.
The sleeper draft choice may be Elaine Lan Chao at transportation. If you are going to direct a trillion dollars in infrastructure improvements, you might want to put it in the hands of someone familiar with how a federal bureaucracy works.
The Cabinet has some good reviews. I post this from one.
From Jon Gabriel:
As Donald Trump rolled out his cabinet nominees, Beltway types were disturbed by a peculiar pattern.
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry said that he wanted to close the Department of Energy in 2012. Trump chose Perry to lead it.
Betsy DeVos has spent years opposing Common Core and anti-reform teachers’ unions. Trump picked her to run the Department of Education.
Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt gained national fame by suing Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency and their mountain of new mandates. Now Trump wants Pruitt to lead the agency.
Health and Human Services nominee Rep. Tom Price might be Obamacare’s fiercest critic, while Housing and Urban Development nominee Dr. Ben Carson inveighs against the Washington’s cycle of dependency for low-income Americans. Interior Department nominee Rep. Ryan Zinke repeatedly angered the Sierra Club and other environmental groups with a voting record that championed hunters and fishers.
Fans of an ever-expanding federal government are aghast, wondering why so many of Trump’s nominees are openly hostile to the mission of the agencies they seek to lead. But limited government advocates are thinking, it’s about time!Gabriel definitely was not a fan of President Trump.
Likely still isn't.
But performance is the best way to convert a critic.

Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
