Here's Who Hillary Clinton Would Have Put In Her Cabinet

As a child, I was always taught not to count my chickens before they hatched. Apparently Hillary Clinton never heard this proverb, as she had already set up a nearly-complete cabinet and West Wing before election day.

Mike Allen of Axios released a list of the potential appointees in his Tuesday morning newsletter. Some notable picks: John Podesta as Secretary of State, Howard Schulz as Secretary of Labor, Sheryl Sandberg as Treasury Secretary, Loretta Lynch staying on as Attorney General, Huma Abedin as Deputy Chief of Staff, and "Likely an African American" at the EPA.

It was that last bit of "Likely an African American" that had people rolling their eyes and chuckling.

Clinton's people also popped champagne on the campaign plane before the polls even closed.

Yikes.
