600px-us-greatseal-obversesvgThis week, following our look at Lincoln’s “Team of Rivals,” we’ll take a look at six members of President Obama’s Cabinet.  It’s a fantastic time to be doing so, as we are in the flush of appointment hearings and votes–Hillary Clinton was just sworn into the office of Secretary of State yesterday;  Tom Daschle announced his withdrawal from Secretary of Health and Human Services today;  and Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH) was just announced as Obama’s pick for Commerce Secretary earlier this morning (to replace former nominee Governor Bill Richardson [D-AZ]).

Buckle your seatbelts–I think it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
