My Political Dream Team

The good guys of American politics, all in office simultaneously, at the one position they would be best at. Some of these guys I love, and just had to find a position for regardless of what it was. Some of them I don't like, but think they'd be good at whatever position they were assigned to. Others are funny and just for kicks and giggles. But still, imagine the possibilities if all of these guys were in office at the same time...
