You have Rick Santorum as Education Secretary and I have Ted Kennedy. What is so polarizing about that position.

Anyway, if you ever got elected, I hate to say it, but I think I'll find a nice home in Toronto. (Not because of you neccessarily, but your cabinet)

Where would you go if my cabinet ever got in power? Most other nations are either more liberal than the USA, or they are third world.

My dislike for both of them are pretty equal (though Carville's yelling and interruption of guests gets me more annoyed at him.)
