    LaHood, who was a Republican congressman and has been in Transportation for the entire term, would probably not get many speaking against his job.  That is because he devoted himself to his portfolio and has been a team player since being placed on the team.

    Huntsman might be an interesting choice if he hadn't quit as ambassador to China, a position that the president had entrusted to him, purposefully to run against Obama.  This indicates to me that we cannot rely on him, like LaHood has convinced us we can rely on him.  If Huntsman wanted it he would be in Beijing today, we should not reward him for his fickleness when he isn't.

      so much as the 'all republicans are bad and have no business anywhere near government' mentality that some people have.

      Yours are reasonable objections to Huntsman.
