"If Manchin were offered and accepted the position, that would allow West Virginia's Governor Jim Justice - a newly minted Republican - to appoint a GOP successor and bring the party a vote closer in the Senate to being able to repeal Obamacare.

Manchin's term of service would be of Scarymucci _duration_, give or take.

Meaning his main purpose in the Cabinet would be to game the Senate more Republican, after which accomplishment he might have no use in the Cabinet. And it would serve him right.
