Getting a Little Ahead of Themselves, Aren't They?

From CNN:

President-elect Donald Trump's nominees for top Cabinet posts will be in the spotlight this week as the Senate holds a frenzy of confirmation hearings.

But according to the US Constitution, Article II, Section 2:

The President .... shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for ...

I don't see anything at all in the Constitution about the president-elect nominating anyone to anything.
