While McCain will also rely on a number of well-established figures...he hasn't run on a campaign of youth and a "new guard" like Obama has. However, there aren't many definite names out there right now. But, here's some of the rumored names...
- Secretary of State: Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut or Fmr. Dep Sec. of State and World Bank President Robert Zoellick,
- Secretary of Defense: Robert Gates (current Secretary of Defense), Fmr. Secretary of the Navy John F. Lehman, or possibly former Dep. Secretary of Defense Richard Armitage (God, I hope not)
- Secretary of the Treasury: Robert Zoellick, Current Mayor Of New York City Michael Bloomberg, Fmr. Gov. of Massachussetts Mitt Romney, or CEO's John T. Chambers (Cisco Systems), Steve Ballmer (Microsoft), or Meg Whitman (eBay)
Just thought I'd throw that out there, for comparisons sake.
But it does seem that McCain is looking to mix stalwart politicians with some out-of-the-box cabinet candidates.
