I believe this is legit, two liberals are allowed for Partisan offices (Crawford and Pinckney)

@swejie

Crawford for Secretary of State, accepts

@Leuser

Dick Johnson for Secretary of the Treasury

@Agent B

John Marshall for Secretary of War

@Woot

Gouverneur Morris for Attorney General
Charles Pinckney II for Postmaster General

@mlcorcoran

William Marcy for General
George Dallas for Special Envoy

@Shamilton

Davy Crockett for Secretary of the Navy

@swejie Postmaster General became a partisan office in 1804; I think only one Liberal can be appointed to a partisan office of a Conservative cabinet. 

@Actinguy is this correct?

If so, one of the two liberals needs to be replaced with a Conservative: Crawford at Secretary of State or Pinckney at Postmaster General.

 

If there were no eligible Conservatives on the board, another liberal would be allowed, but we do have Conservatives eligible to take either position.

Yes

Also @AgentB could have had Clay or Calhoun make a speech, free, or done something else.

ISSUE ONE

1821

Mr. President.  You are the first Federalist to actually be elected to office (rather than inheriting the job).  Congratulations.

Now, it's time to show the world -- and especially the American voters -- what a strong, central government can accomplish when duly elected by the people.

First matter of business -- the shaky border between America and New Spain.  This has already led to lost life and lost treasure, as New Spain invaded Louisiana and led to the Liberal President Monroe weakly paying New Spain a small fortune to withdraw.  That may be how Liberals deal with these matters -- but that's not how a strong Federalist does.

It's time for the borders between America and New Spain to be settled once and for all.  We propose that we push to acquire the Florida territory from New Spain, and solidify the western borders as well.  Some American settlers may find themselves on the wrong side of that border, so we'd need to set aside $5 million to purchase their lands from them and then cede them to New Spain.  But in return, relations would be normalized and we'd gain the panhandle territory, which I'm told has lovely beaches and extremely tall mice.

We've already drafted up the paperwork.  All that's left to do is have the strong, conservative Secretary of State march the paperwork over to the New Spain embassy and force them to...

Wait, what?

The Secretary of State is William Crawford?

A Liberal???

Oh, no.

Well...

Are we going to trust a Liberal to do a man's job?
