Scott Brown to head the Department of Veterans Affairs in the Trump administration, should Donald Trump nominate him for the job. “If Scott Brown is the nominee for Veterans Affairs, I have no doubt that he would put his heart and soul into trying to help veterans,” Warren said in an interview with Boston’s WGBH News Wednesday.

Sarah Palin is being considered, but as CBS News’ Major Garrett reports, her consideration is largely “theoretical,” and not necessary serious, according to transition officials.
