Ok, this is kind of a gamble based off some of Trump's comments on O-Care, but if it does pan out I think I'll get some big points from him, so let's take risks.

Sec. Tom Price

Also, how many people will the teams consist of?

We're going to just do teams of 5 for this inaugural season. I was considering 10, but I don't think we have enough days to fill the rosters.

Just so you know, since you picked 5 republicans/conservatives, you have to select 2 Democrats/progressives/liberals for your last two selections, since one of the rules is to balance the rosters between ideologies.

My next was already going to be a liberal and doesn't Kennedy count as a moderate?

As far as I know, he's a moderate conservative, appointed by Reagan, and traditionally a member of the Republican Party.

Fair, he does swing on social issues like gay "marriage" and others, he has the approach of a libertarian.

I think the majority of Republicans today are actually okay with gay marriage, or it's drifting that way. I don't know when the last poll was conducted for this. Definitely younger Republicans are. You're an exception in this. I think if I were a Republican that opposed it, I would probably think the issue was so unimportant in the big scheme of things that I wouldn't care which way it went. Same with abortion and gun control. I'd probably focus exclusively on issues that impact people's income and wages, seeing those three issues as a waste of time, as other issues are more important. As a progressive, I do find the gun control issue sort of a waste of time and energy, so I don't really care which way that goes. On abortion, I think women should decide the issue, and then let that settle that. On gay marriage, I think it should be legalized, since I think people should have the liberty to do it if they wish. I do think churches opposed to gay marriage should be free to refuse to marry a couple, and I think that would be okay with most gay people, since they'd likely not want to get married in that church any way.

@vcczar I think that being a progressive, you are out of step on 2/3 of those issues, I get the gay "marriage" thing among REPS, but the other are more important than you might think, to conservatives, Gun Control isn't really a matter of guns, bur of the sanctity of the Constitution in regards to governance, and abortion too, those against abortion often will view it, in at least some cases, as child murder, which makes this a huge issue for the base being concerned with ours, a society that could condone such behavior, but we digress, this was about Justice Kennedy's conservatism, I think I have decided to Liberal/Democrats to put on my team. (Should they be available:P )

Well, that's your opinion. Let's save this for another thread and stick strictly to the Fantasy League here.

I'll pick Janet Yellen anyway. Most top Democrats are picked yet and I expect her to remain within the public eye due to her ''special relationship'' with President Trump.
