President’s Cabinet

Just as an addendum to yesterday’s post:

I was going to try to squeeze in there the fact that the British equivalent to the US President’s cabinet has members who are called *ministers* instead of the US term, *secretary*, because they serve… well somebody. But as I was looking around I found the official page listing the [US Cabinet members](http://www.whitehouse.gov/government/cabinet.html). Wow. Talk about integration! In the major department heads, WASP’s barely make up a plurality. Seven white guys out of fifteen total. I count two chinese, two hispanic, two black, and four women. Interesting to say the least.

I barely have that kind of diversity among my acquaintances!

  1. I’m sorry — I guess you didn’t get the memo. That diversity doesn’t count because the President appoints conservatives. The only diversity that the left acknowledges are those that walk the strict party line. So even though 8 out of 15 cabinet members are technically from minority groups, it doesn’t count. ….also of those WASPs you mentioned….it’s possible that not all are protestant. 😉
