... or what if American movie villains were members of the US government? (or the most important officials of the executive branch)

Which of these assignments would be your worst-case scenario?

ElMo: I suggest a correction for Warden Samuel Norton from The Shawshank Redemption. Instead of Judiciary Committee (part of Congress), he could be assigned Attorney General (in the Cabinet, and not currently assigned in this list/poll).

The Attorney General is the head of the Department of Justice, which includes the Bureau of Prisons, so Norton's "specialty" would be relevant to that position.

Thanks for the insight :)

I guess we can juggle with these characters... mayve some would be better fits for other positions...

Any suggestion welcomed...

ElMo,

This is a really hard choice. After I stop laughing, I may cast my vote.

15yearsIMDber aka ElMo, I know that it's a light-hearted poll, but... 

I just can't bring myself to suggest anything productive or even remotely 'fun' on the subject. Management of certain wilcard events ravaging through this year just taught us that governments in most of the countries are either too clueless or too corrput to effectively lead us anywhere else than a post-apocalyptic wasteland. 

We are living through worst-case scenarios on a daily basis.

I know how you feel and I try to act according to my principles in my minimalist sphere, I don't trust politicians but I'd rather look at them as gesticulating muppets in the media circus with a Fellini music playing than big bad guys who want to destroy us...

Though I believe evil exists, I decided not to torture myself anymore with such thoughts, otherwise life will always look bleak and greyish with "Schindler's List" music in the background...

I am thinking on possible terrible secretaries of Environment, since it is the most important problem of our days.

FYC for that position:

Aloysius O'Hare
Poison Ivy

Pencho and ElMo,

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Environmental_Protection_Agency
The EPA [United States Environmental Protection Agency] is not a Cabinet department, but the administrator is normally given cabinet rank.

As such, it would be interesting to include an EPA Chair, but it is probably borderline to include it. Both Aloysius O'Hare and Poison Ivy would make intriguing EPA Chairs.

I wanted to stick to American live-action characters... otherwise I might have included Man from "Bambi"... anyway thanks for taking time to come up with these suggestions... I smell a potential part two for this poll but with animated characters ;)

I love this poll, ElMo, and, unfortunately, it's so timely because it's not that far off from the current reality, which is more terrifying than even these characters. I love the caption for the last option (Cheney), lol. Thank you for the comic relief. : )
