Given the huge importance of grabbing hold of the American military machine that any sane President would see demands to be done, who would you rather put in charge; Jesse or Ron? It's got to be Jesse, given his background.
With Jesse nominally in charge, able to do the whole global schmooze, while the Doctor runs the back-office, the team would be perfect.
For Jesse, think Jackson; Andrew Jackson. This last gentleman wasn't a perfect theoretician of liberty, but he felt it in his gut. Fortunately he was surrounded by others who were also sound but with the theoretical knowledge to back it up. Jackson favoured sound money, because it was simple horse sense. The Jacksonians did so, because they had grasped the rudiments of monetary wisdom.
