Regardless of your political affiliation, if you have any at all, this entertaining and interesting take on another taxonomy piqued my interest, and hopefully will do the same for you.

This interesting piece was found in the National Journal in their article, “The 6 Species of Secretaries That Will Define Obama’s Term.” President Obama has put together his cabinet for the second term and someone has taken the time to put together a taxonomy to define this new group of leaders. Each president’s cabinet is unique, albeit somewhat forgettable. What does President Obama’s cabinet mean, and how does it reflect what the future holds?

The groups identified in the taxonomy include Tightwads, Agenda Setters, Team Chicago, Make It Work, Have we met?, and He’s Still Here. Is that interesting enough to inspire you to read the entire article?
