The Morning Line: Vote for Obama's (Other) Cabinet

By Michael Cavna

Morning, Cartoon Nation...

You're president-elect, about to become leader of the free world. You've got full and complete superpower over whom you pick to fill your Cabinet. There's just one catch:

You must fill every position will cartoon characters.

This week, after "Spider-Man" co-creator Stan Lee joked with Comic Riffs that he'd love to be appointed to a new Cabinet-level position in an Obama administration -- say, secretary of comics -- 'Riffs sought your nominations for a comic Cabinet. (Not that some real-life Cabinets haven't been inadvertently comic.)

You want defense? Don't mess with a ripped Pam. (TMS) Enlarge Comic

So here are the top nominations to lead Cartoon Nation. Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Pick which of these would be your very first pick for your Cabinet. (And if you'd like to explain your reasoning at our little confirmation hearing, the microphones are now "hot" in the Comments field.)

I voted for Mark Trail because, well, it was my idea.

I voted for Mark Trail, too. Anything to get him off the comics page.

It is all your fault I read Brewster Rockitl. You just kept talking about it to the point I had to really look to see what you were talking about....
Mark for Interior Secy is perfect.

Judge Parker is finally having his retirement party (what has it been, 2 years since the invitations were sent out?), so now he is free (and old enough) to be appointed to the Supreme Court. Sam Driver can be sent as an envoy to the Bermuda Triangle or Brigadoon to get rid of him, and then Detective Heidi Hottie can be named Attorney General. The adventures of General Hottie would be the best strip ever!

I would also suggest that the RMMD strip become Rex Morgan, Surgeon General and then be canceled when it's discovered that he hasn't actually practiced medicine in decades. Mary Worth, of course, would be an ideal Secretary of Health and Human Resources, since she wants to run everyone's life already.
