The Obama Cabinet

For a listing of those we already know will be in the cabinet, as well as those who are in the running for posts not yet determined, see here.

Republicans and conservatives should be both relieved and concerned. While those being appointed are to the left of where conservatives would prefer for them to be, this is by and large not a group of far left wing ideologues. On the other hand, if Republicans were thinking that they could run against a "socialist" President and cabinet, they had better come up with a different strategy.

The nation has wondered whether President Obama would govern the nation as a hard leftist or as a center left pragmatist. The cabinet appointments would indicate the latter. Those who are to the right of center will be challenged to respond.
