Many Republicans want nothing to do with staunchly liberal Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio. But GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul says he would consider naming Kucinich to his Cabinet if he became president, The Hill reports.

Ron, Paul, president, kucinich, cabinetKucinich shares Paul’s opposition to our involvement in Mideast wars, and the Texas representative says his libertarian philosophy helps him find areas of agreement with some liberals.

Paul quipped at a breakfast conference that he might have to create a "Department of Peace" if he wants Kucinich in his Cabinet.

"You've got to give credit to people who think," Paul said. "Being pragmatic is about forming coalitions. I probably work with coalitions better than the other candidates. I don't think I've said anything negative here about the president."
