"I've talked to people who are seeking positions in various agencies and you know, in the past I might look at a role in Veterans Affairs or the Energy Department as rather lacking in excitement," Serrano said. "I don't think there's a department in this government that will be lacking in excitement."

Trump, for his part, is sharpening the needle he uses to stick it in the eye of the Democrats at every turn. He nominates a businessman to be secretary of State, ardent opponents of Obamacare and environmental regulations to lead HHS and EPA, an ambassador to Israel who wants to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and annex Palestinian land in the West Bank, and drains the swamp with Goldman Sachs.
This is one helluva honeymoon. Trump's polling numbers are up from high thirties approval to 47 percent — but with a 51 percent disapproval, he is upside down. Did Putin impact his election? Is this what we are going to be talking about? How about things like jobs, security, allies, spending? Campaign 2016 is not over. Can Trump flip the switch and move forward?
