Template talk:GW Bush cabinet
Should we include the cabinet-level posts (Chief of Staff, Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Director of National Drug Control Policy and Trade Representative)? Therequiembellishere (talk) 00:36, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Gates and the Treasury
I've made two recent edits. Now for the easy one. The t/p was incorrect in stating that John Snow took over in 2002; he took office two months later. See Snow's Treasury bio. The second may be a bit a controversial. I've added a 2009 to Robert Gates' date as this shows when his tenure under Pres. Bush ended. For more details why, see Template talk:Obama cabinet#Robert Gates will continue to be Defense Secretary. Some site are already starting to do this; for example see POTUS: GWB, Obama and the Miller Center: GWB, Obama. Hope this helps. - Thanks, Hoshie 11:37, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
This t/p previously listed the FEMA Director as being of cabinet rank. This doesn't seem to be correct. It seems that GWB didn't give his FEMA Director cabinet rank. In an article after the 2008 election, CQ wrote:
During the Clinton administration, FEMA Administrator James Lee Witt met with the cabinet. His successor in the Bush administration, Joe M. Allbaugh, did not.
