  • Trump seeks Obama advice on appointments

    An excellent move by Trump.

    (CNN)President-elect Donald Trump revealed Wednesday that he consults with President Barack Obama on some of his potential appointments -- and values the President's views.

    "I have asked him what he would think of this one and that one," Trump told NBC's Matt Lauer on "The Today Show."

    "I take his recommendations very seriously," Trump added. "And there are some people that I will be appointing and, in one case, have appointed where he thought very highly of that person."

    Like Obama said, they're on the same team. Personally I think it was time for someone on a different team, but I guess it's a good sign he's willing to take advice from someone with experience.

      A good way to know who not to appoint.
      Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

          This is part of what I was thinking. Its generally a good thing for the current POTUS to maintain friendly relations with living ex Presidents.

              The Donald: So, Barry, who should I nominate for EPA Administrator?

              The Barry: Well, Donnie, I'm glad you asked. Here's a list of candidates drawn up by my EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. (Hands Trump a piece of paper).

              The Donald: Thanks Barry. I'll get this right over to my transition team, as I have with all of your recommendations...

                  Weird, Trump a much classier President-elect with Obama than Obama was with his predecessor, who'd have thunk it?

                    Trump will avoid anyone Obama recommends like the plague. What good is advice from an eight year loser?

                      There is no shortage of qualified Republicans and Democrats who are ready and willing to fill these positions. They may be mundane but they are high paying.

                      Trump may appoint one or two democrats to high profile posts. So far he has picked three former generals who theoretically are A political.

                      There are going to be 51 or 52 Republican U.S. Senators and 240 Republican U.S. Reps. These 290 Republicans will have dozens of suggestions for appointments.

                      The Democrats had their 8 years to fill appointed positions. Its the Republican's turn.

                        Going from Congress to a Cabinet is hardly a pay increase.

                        What federal politicians and Cabinet members earn

                        To start, do you know what federal politician and Cabinet members actually earn every year? Here is a breakdown:
                        • Congress members (Representatives and Senators): $174,000
                        • Senate and House Majority/Minority Leaders: $193,400
                        • Cabinet members: $199,700
                        • Speaker of the House: $223,500
                        • Vice President: $230,700
                        • President: $400,000

                        From 2010:

                          I wasn't talking about going from the senate or congress to appointed service. I was stating that Republican congress members and senators will have plenty of suggestions for these positions.

                              Going from CEO to Cabinet Secretary is a huge paycut and it also means having to report to a boss. I wonder why so many CEO's and/or billionaires are essentially offering pro bono services to the Trump administration...
