In what order, if any, are the Cabinet members listed? It does not seem to be alphabetical, by start or end date or by age. (talk) 20:32, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

They are listed in order of administration seniority (the order of precedence), and then chronologically. Star Garnet (talk) 02:45, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

That order is:

  • Secretary of State
  • Secretary of the Treasury
  • Secretary of Defense
  • Attorney General
  • (Postmaster General)
  • Secretary of the Interior
