Thoughts on a John Kerry dream cabinet?

Hypothesizing a John Kerry administration, any thoughts on what you'd like to see as the Kerry cabinet? Really, go wild. Dr. Howard Dean as Surgeon General? NY Times columnist and economist Paul Krugman as Treasury Secretary? Dennis Kucinich running Health and Human Services? It really just makes you salivate, doesn't it? Thoughts?

On a more serious note, though, I think that, if Kerry wins, a lot of folks who were never that excited about him but who bit the bullet and got behind him are going to be waiting to see if their support is going to be repaid. And a big part of that is going to be whether Kerry makes the "right" decisions. Picking John Edwards as his running mate was pretty clearly a good start (as opposed to Al Gore's absolutely disastrous choice of Republican Joe Lieberman). Can Kerry keep it up, or might he buckle and pander to the centre by nominating moderates all around?
