The exact shape of President-Elect Donald Trump’s administration and cabinet is not yet fully formed or defined but of this there can be no doubt: Whatever its ultimate cast, it will be one of sharp right edges. It is not looking like the most rightward or conservative administration since Ronald Reagan; compared to his first term choices, this is an administration looking more conservative than Reagan’s.

Observing Donald Trump’s early and latest choices conjures up a paraphrase of the old line about Barry Goldwater after he gave his stem-winder at the Cow Palace in 1964: My god, he’s going to govern as Donald Trump!

Elaine Chao, Betsy DeVos, Michael Flynn, Nikki Haley, Steven Mnuchin, Mike Pompeo, Tom Price, Wilbur Ross, Jeff Sessionsthis is a conservative public policy dream-team in the making, and at the most important of public policy positions and campaign commitments.

    Sure, but what is Trump waiting for on DHS? Obviously it should be Kobach. How is there even any doubt about this? Let’s go Trump.

    Please God don’t let him pick Romney (or that rat Corker) for Sec. State!

      Amen! RINO Romney is the Snake in the Donald Trump poem.

    So far this conservative is very pleased with President-elect Donald Trump’s actual appointments and actions which indicate that President Trump intends to deliver as many of his campaign promises as possible. I wait for the rest of his team to be assembled and join those who hope that RINO Romney is not part of that team.
