Donald Trump's skeptics hope the presidency will reveal a serious side of the brash businessman.Trump has soothed some Republican establishment anxieties with many of his early Cabinet picks, including the respected retired Gen. James Mattis to lead the Pentagon and Georgia Rep. Tom Price, an orthopedic surgeon, tapped to head the Department of Health and Human Services.Trump is also refusing to abandon the raucous, stream-of-consciousness rallies and Twitter tirades that defined his presidential campaign.Indeed, Trump has appeared to win over some of his toughest Republican critics since defeating Clinton. GOP lawmakers have praised all of his Cabinet nominees, some of whom hold more traditionally conservative views than Trump himself. Trump appears acutely aware that the enthusiastic supporters who propelled him to the White House are watching carefully to see if he'll back away from his pledges to shake up the political system.Supporters shouted their opposition to Romney being in the Cabinet Thursday as Trump stood on stage in Cincinnati for the kickoff of a "thank you" tour for voters.Trump gave them plenty else to cheer about, fully re-embracing his firebrand and raucous campaign persona. Trump did hit some of the right notes in terms of unifying the nation when he managed to stick to the script rolling down the teleprompter.
