Anything is possible, but an article over at the Politico posits the idea of Democratic President Barack Obama appointing a Republican as the next federal attorney general. The article mainly talks about Ted Olsen, but mentions outgoing senior Senator Saxby Chambliss as a good choice for the post.
The cries of Senator Chambliss as being a sellout, fake Republican #RINO would probably be shouted from every corner of the state. I’d be interested to see how he would do in such a post (or any Republican, for that matter, appointed by the President). I doubt that this would happen, but stranger things have happened in our political climate.
