Sarah Palin Wants To Be the Next Energy Secretary

If Donald Trump wins the 2016 presidential election, Sarah Palin may potentially serve as Energy secretary, as she puts it "energy is my baby." On the other hand, she stated she wants to eliminate the federal Energy Department completely by saying on CNN's "State of the Union," “I think a lot about the Department of Energy, because energy is my baby. Oil and gas and minerals, those things that God has dumped on this part of the earth for mankind's use instead of us relying on unfriendly foreign nations, for us to import their -- their resources. I think a lot about the Department of Energy. And if I were head of that, I'd get rid of it. And I'd let the states start having more control over the lands that are within their boundaries and the people who are affected by the developments within their states. So, you know, if I were in charge of that, it would be a short-term job, but it would be a -- it would be really great to have someone who knows energy and is pro-responsible development to be in charge.” Trump has said that he would like someone with Palin's background to serve in his Cabinet.
