I'm normally a fan of Tom Friedman, but this list of an ideal Democratic cabinet seems to be mainly a list of speakers at Davos and Aspen. Maybe the elites who benefit most from the status quo shouldn't be put in charge of changing the status quo.

Tom Friedman in Monday's NYT: "This is code red. The biggest threat to the integrity of our democracy today is in the Oval Office."
