If you want an idea of just how immaterial and superficial the Democratic Party has become, there are now reports that party officials are floating around the idea of giving rocker Jon Bon Jovi a cabinet post in the event Hillary Clinton becomes our 45th president.
Bon Jovi is a fan of the former secretary of state, and the idea of a new cabinet position for him would be in return for his continued support.
One can only hope the suggestion was made in jest — but with Clinton, one never knows for sure.
On June 1, Bon Jovi officially joined the Clinton team and welcomed her to the stage at a Newark, New Jersey, campaign event.
People magazine reported that the suggestion originated with the rocker himself.

People were far from amused.

But recalling a classic Bon Jovi title, one thought the idea had at least some merit.
@people Why not. We will be Living on a Prayer.

Rather than allowing the suggestion to die a quiet, merciful death, interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile picked it up and breathed new life into it by offering still more ideas.
Wait, what about ‘Secretary of Joy, Peace and Soul?’ That alone can help end gridlock. https://t.co/3sPgUGJDJ3

*GROAN* Those suggestions were also met with some discord.
@donnabrazile For 1: dont count your chickens before they hatch. 2: just move the White House to hollyweird during a Dem admin.

And speaking of titles, this person had an appropriate one for Brazile.
