Wow. This is big:
SCOOP: Trump is discussing TED CRUZ for AG

Jacobs is a reporter for Bloomberg Politics. People had been talking about the possibility, but that would be… YUGE.
Cruz was meeting with Trump earlier today:
Donald Trump met privately Tuesday with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, kicking off what could be one of the most complicated post-election relationships in Washington.
Cruz visited Trump Tower on Tuesday afternoon to meet with the President-elect, a step most congressional Republicans have not yet taken. Many Republican leaders in Congress have merely spoken with Trump by phone.
The topic of their conversation was not clear.
Catherine Frazier, a Cruz spokeswoman, said in a statement that Cruz “looks forward to assisting the Trump administration” in achieving policy wins for conservatives, though she did not offer further details.
Ted Cruz is @ Trump Tower today, per @VaughnHillyard. Transition aide says he's not being considered for a post but "came by to offer aid"

I have to say that if Trump did that, it would make a LOT OF people much more open to his administration. It would totally piss off the liberals. It would be a pretty brilliant stroke. But he would have to put aside his personal grudge against Cruz, and that seems to be the only principle he ever stands by…
