Pres Cabinet

Probably deriving from the French term cabine meaning "small, private room," the U.S. President's Cabinet is a sophisticated group of close advisers, including the Vice President and the secretaries of 15 executive departments. One of the main purposes of the Cabinet is to advise the President on any subject he may require relating to the duties of their respective offices.

One of the major duties that President Barack Obama will undertake before assuming office in January is naming members to his Cabinet. On Nov. 6, 2008, U.S. Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., accepted Obama's offer to become the White House Chief of Staff, making him the first named Cabinet member under Obama's administration. Emanuel's position is one of six to have cabinet-level rank, which entitles them to attend Cabinet meetings without being secretaries of executive departments.
