Pete Buttigieg Vetted For Cabinet Posts ... Commerce, HUD, EPA on the Table

*Okay, this is not exactly a serious news source, but it sounds about right - I was reading an article about actor David L. Lander (Squiggy) when I came across this....

TMZ - Joe Biden said the LGBTQ+ community would be represented in his cabinet, and sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ, Pete Buttigieg is actively under consideration for various posts, but we're told he didn't get his first choice.

Sources privy to the selection process tell TMZ, Buttigieg is being vetted for what could be a significant appointment. We're told the possible appointment includes Secretary of Commerce and HUD. We're told he's also under consideration to head the EPA.

Our sources say another post that has been a subject of discussion is Veterans Affairs. As you know, Pete served in Afghanistan and has a strong connection to the military. We're told, although the V.A. remains a possibility for Pete, it's unlikely.

We're told what Buttigieg really wanted was U.N. Ambassador, but obviously, that position has already been filled.

1. I can dig it!

Pete might have problems climbing in Indiana politics given his lifestyle. A national office would be good for the country and for him. Might depend on how he enjoys his new gig at Notre Dame, though.

5. If I were Pete, I would stay away

The Republican Senate will purposely try to sabotage any agency he heads in order to damage him for any future Presidential or Senate run.

They would cut into the VA budget and then blame Mayor Pete for the results.

6. You may be right. That's why we can't have nice things.

7. He is deserving, he played great Team Biden ball but...

...career wise I am thinking Governor or Senator would be a better step for him but that may be hard in Indiana.

8. I've been saying that for the last year. The great advantage of running for President is the name

recognition he now has. It creates the possibility to run for Senate in 2022 against Mike Braun.
