    I liked the OP on Trump's VP potentials, so I wanted to go one further and ask you to predict, or suggest who you'd like to see him pick for his cabinet members!

    Also, if you have any suggestions for the 11 or 12 SCOTUS picks he claims he will pick prior to the elction, list those too!

    Thanks!

    I'd love to see Condi Rice as VP! From there, I have no idea, which is why I ask you folks for names! Of course, I'd like to see Newt, Huckabee or Christie as Secretary of State. And one of the more recent retired generals, someone that left Obama out of disgust, be named as Secretary of Defense! We need a military person in that role!

    No. That could be another strike against her (Iraq war).

    I wonder what skeptics' response will be to Trump's picking conservative SCOTUS nominees for a list to choose from. Seems he is putting his cards on the table and if these choices turn out to be true conservatives then it should become part of the "facts" about where his loyalties lie.

    This thread is all moot. Clinton will be the next President.

    When is this fantasy going to happen? You really think Trump will submit a list of potential SCOTUS nominees?

    I'll put that one right next to the one where Trump promises not to change the GOP platform at the convention in Cleveland.

    I think that there would be many 'I told you sos' when they do not turn out to be as conservative as you guys think.

    Remember Earl Warren was a conservative Republican back in the day. He was one of the movers and shakers behind the detention of (Japanese-) American citizens when he was governor of California.

    Are you suggesting I fantasized this?!

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-supreme-court-july_us_572bda78e4b016f378954940

    "I'm gonna name 10 or 12 judges that I would recommend to put on the Supreme Court and I'm gonna name them up-front and I'm only going to take the judges out of that pool of judges because I want people to understand I want the values in terms of the Republican Party and conservatives — I want judges that they're gonna be happy with," ~ Trump

    LOL. Yeah, you would need to believe something Trump says as being the truth to go along with this, hence, it's a fantasy.

    At this point, I won't bother explaining why your response above is pure fallacy if you don't already know. ;)

    Yet my question still stands:

    "I wonder what skeptics' response will be to Trump's picking conservative SCOTUS nominees for a list to choose from. Seems he is putting his cards on the table and if these choices turn out to be true conservatives then it should become part of the "facts" about where his loyalties lie."

    So, if he both lays these cards on the table as he said AND ends up choosing from them then his opponents that have questioned his conservative values will have been left with either responding that they were wrong or pretending it didn't happen the way he said and jumping to the next rabbit hole. My bet, from observation of prior arguments from those obsessed with vendetta against Trump is they'll take the later route than admit their poor judgement...
