I've often wondered what a Ron Paul team would have looked like, had he gotten this far...or what a Cabinet in a Ron Paul administration would look like. After all, there are only so many people (read:none) like Ron to choose from. He would have had to make some choices that would make us wince. They would, no doubt, come from the same pool as those who worked for Santorum, Bush, McCain, etc.
Here's a major difference, in my opinion, between a hypothetical Ron Paul team, Rand's team, and Trump's team: Ron and Rand are solid libertarian (or, in Rand's case, libertarian-leaning) candidates. They would never let those people lead them where they don't want to go, even if they have no better choice but to have them around. Trump has no experience with foreign policy, economic policy, etc. He would have to rely on those advisors much more than either Ron or Rand would, even if his ego is too yuuuuge to ever admit it.
