There has only been one presidential election where the candidate announced his cabinet prior to winning. It is considered unlucky and imprudent to do so.
In this day and age, the American public should demand to know who the president elect will appoint to critical decision making positions prior to the election.
We must know and understand that the president never acts alone when making decisions. His chief advisors are those individuals who concentrate on a specific area of government oversight and then report to the president their findings and recommendations.
The presidential advisors do not have to be experts in the field to which they were assigned. In the past it was only necessary to work on the campaign of the winning candidate or to have contributed monetarily to the campaign.
As actively engaged citizens, we must demand to know who will be leading our government prior to the election of the president.
We should know, first hand, no only who will fill cabinet positions but what their qualifications are for holding that position.
Before the primaries are over, presidential candidates should be required to announce their cabinet so that the American people will know exactly for whom they are voting.
Obama was a health care president who knew little about education. He appointed his friend to the position of Secretary of Education. Arne Duncan was a basketball player who was a poor superintendent of Chicago’s school system.
Who the next president will be is important in a very superficial way. It is better to know the alliances and allegiances of the individuals running for the office of the presidency.
The Constitution was crafted so the type of pandering and treachery that existed in England’s government would not occur in America.
When we provide every child in America with a developmentally appropriate, Arts based, experiential education that concentrates on discovering, developing, and directing their individual gifts and talents towards becoming knowledgeable, actively engaged citizens, “hedgehogs” will no longer have control of our government and we will be free to rule ourselves.
