They will not like you anywhere! Donald John Trump strikes me as someone who is trying so hard to “reach across the aisle”, he risks giving away his goal. The media will never like you Mr. Trump. The Establishment will never like you. Megyn ‘Smelly’ Kelly will never like you. Wolf Blitzer will never like you.
You could appoint Jeb Bush and John Kasich, and all they would do is try to undermine you. You do have a hurdle getting Jeff Sessions and ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis through the appointment process, I get that. So you are throwing them a bone with Romney, just don’t give them the whole steak.
What is imminently likely to happen, is that using some sort of bizarre logic, the Republicans will reinstitute the 60 vote rule in the cabinet approval process. If they don’t do that, you can count on John ‘Maverick’ McCain and Susan ‘Notice me!’ Collins finding some reason to vote ‘no’ on your best appointments, thereby sabotaging your cabinet.
The thing to keep in mind is that for the next 4 years, the establishment will be fighting you each and every step along the way. They are deathly afraid of having the swamp drained. And they are greatly aggrieved that the people of this country had the temerity to threaten their stranglehold on ruling by not electing Hillary.
When they reinstitute the “60 vote” rule, they will couch it in terms of, “In order to help the country heal after this divisive election, we wish to reach out to Democrats and give them a say in the new Cabinet.”
