    How well known are Obama's cabinet members? I've never heard of them. (political quiz inside)

    I've not heard of most of them I should say.

    Are they all 'household names' or at least known vaguely by name in the United States?

    Other than the P and VP I know John Kerry, and vaguely recognise the names Chuck Hagel and Eric Holder, but that's it.

    Do they hold any power whatsoever do influence policy without the President/Congress approval or are really just managerial and administrative posts with zero influence?

    I thought I'd test the CE&P regulars (mostly U.S. based) on their knowledge of the rest. I've never heard of them. Have you?

    How many do you know without highlighting?

    YIKES! I know the WH Chief of Staff, the Ambassador to the UN, the EPA Chief and Health and Human Services.

    Highlighting the names...I know "of" 75% of them and a little about each...the other 25%...nothing.

    Who's Obama?
    Everyone wants to be heard. No one wants to listen.

    Prior to their appointments, I knew of the Secretaries of Treasury, Agriculture, Commerce, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Education, Veterans Affairs, Ambassador to the UN, State and Defense. The secretaries of Agriculture and HHS, Vilsak and Sibelius, were former governors, so I was familiar with them. Shaun Donovan (HUD) was a NYC Commissioner, so I was familiar with him from those days. Lew (Treasury) had other positions in the Obama Administration. Powers (UN) called Hillary Clinton a monster during Obama's first election, which was widely reported in the press. Penny Pritzger (Commerce) was well known as huge fundraiser for Obama and personal friend. Shinseki (Veterans Affairs) was well known as a general who got drummed out of the military under Bush for, correctly, saying that many more troops would be needed in the invasion of Iraq in the run up to the war, angering the Bush administration that was lying about everything having to do with the war. I remember Duncan (Education) from his days has head of Chicago schools. Kerry (State) and Hagel (Defense) were Senators.

    To be honest Chickenguy, it's very much my impression that most Americans aren't familiar with most of a given President's cabinet.

    I don't think that the majority of the cabinet do much like in previous administrations.

    You used to see many cabinet secretaries on TV or even making local trips. Things have changed. I think the invisible czars are doing their jobs.

    Except for the Secretary of State and the Attorney General, I can't name anyone in Obama's cabinet.

    I can actually name more people in George W. Bush's cabinet.

    It reminds me of when I taught undergraduates. For some reason, the students I remember best were the troublemakers and failures, not the good students. I suppose the bad students required a lot more of my time, effort, and attention.

    OOOH, I knew three!

    White House Chief of Staff: [Denis McDonough]
    Secretary of Homeland Security: [Rand Beers]
    Secretary of the Treasury: [Jack Lew]

    If I knew there was going to be a test I'd have stayed home and studied for it.

    Wow -- I knew six (if you count Attorney General, which you didn't list).

    Of the others, I recognized three names -- the rest, nothing.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "
