Predictions for Obama's cabinet

We will immediately get back to Northwest Connecticut politics, but couldn't resist one piece of for-what-it's-worth speculation for political junkies about President-elect Barack Obama's cabinet.
Look to Democratic governors who are prevented by their states' system of term limits from running for re-election in 2010. There are 10 of them, and some are considered rising political stars, not the type to fade into non-political life.
They include key early supporters of Obama, such as Gov. Janet Napolitano of Arizona and Gov. Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas, key late supporters of Obama, i.e., Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico, and big industrial/key swing state personalities, i.e., Gov. Jennifer Granholm of Michigan and Gov. Ed Rendell, who could bring something to the table in terms of economic policy.
Who wants to bet that Obama will rescue some of them before they have nothing to run for in two years?
