Democrat Barack Obama says he "absolutely" wants Republicans in his Cabinet should he win the election Tuesday - a rarity for US administrations. The Democratic presidential nominee told ABC television during an interview that he has a good idea who he'd like to nominate for what he says would be a bipartisan Cabinet. However he did not spill any details, and ducked the question of whether he would like to see Defense Secretary Robert Gates stay at the Pentagon. Obama did say, however, that he believes it is important for the country "to return to a tradition of nonpartisan national security."
