I've yet to hear anyone of substance give serious consideration to Powell for Sec Def. While I would LOVE to see that happen, I don't think it will. I think Powell will more likely be Obama's foreign policy adviser which is just a step below being Sec of State.
I keep hearing Bill Richardson's name dropped for Sec of State. I like Richardson. He's a good man. I would have voted for him over McCain had he been the Democratic nominee. Being a former UN ambassador makes him very qualified for the position.
Warren Buffet is an outside shot for Treasury Sec. I think Obama would love to have him but Buffet isn't dumb enough to take the job. I think Paul Vocker is going to get the job.
As for Sec of Def, I hope that Gates does stick around. Supposedly, Obama wants him. I would like to see him stay there for at least another year. IMO He is the anti Rumsfeld and that is a very good thing.
