    Obama should appoint McCain to the Department of Veterans' Affairs.

    1) The VA is already a giant mess, so if McCain can clean it up, good for him. If not, then it's not as though he's going to make it worse;

    2) It takes McCain away from the Sunday talk shows and microphones at every waking moment;

    3) It looks like Obama is being congenial (giving a cabinet appointment);

    4) It opens up a Senate seat.

      McCain would be an awful manager or chief executive.

      •  but keep in mind that the VA system (0+ / 0-)

        is already a mess and McCain is unlikely to make it worse.

        If anything, his uncanny ability to go on TV and garner attention for his causes may even result in him getting the funding and management needed to improve the VA.
