The Cabinet consists of the heads of the various Federal Agencies and Departments. Their job is not only to lead the agencies they head but to give advice and counsel to the P…resident.
There are 15 departments of the US Executive Branch, each of which has a Secretary except the Department of Justice which is headed by the US Attorney General. The departments… are : Department of Agriculture Department of Commerce Department of Defense Department of Education Department of Energy Department of Health and Human Services Department of Homeland Security Department of Housing and Urban Development Department of the Interior Department of Justice Department of Labor Department of State Department of Transportation Department of the Treasury Department of Veterans Affairs (see related questions)
Robert Weaver who was Secretary of HUD under LB Johnson was the first Black cabinet member in the US.
A good President chooses his cabinet members based on their proven abilities in that field. But every President chooses at least a few cabinet members as a payback for service… above and beyond the call during the campaign. It is not unusual for a cabinet member appointed by the new president to be quickly and quietly replaced a year to 18 months after they are appointed because they demonstrate no ability for the job they were given - in fact, it's fairly common - just another fact of life in American politics, regardless of party. A typical example would be Richard Nixon's first secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, Robert Finch. HEW rapidly became a shambles under Finch, and he was "quickly and quietly replaced". (HEW is today called "Health and Human Services").
The cabinet members are a big part of the president's team, who perform the job of running the country. Each of them heads an important agency of the federal government. T…hey were chosen for their expertise in their area of responsibility. Most of them were high ranking administrators in universities, businesses, or consulting firms and so can be of service to the President in many ways. They make the President look good if they do a good job in their positions. They sometimes can take the blame if the President makes a decision that turns out badly. They defend the President's policies from attacks and are responsible for making it work. Much of the success or failure of a president is a result of his cabinet.
No. He is an elected official. However, modern presidents have often treated the veep as a sort of honorary cabinet member. He may be seen in the official portrait of the cabi…net and can be sent to represent the President at various state functions or campaign events.
They do not have a term. They serve until they are no longer wanted.
In the US, senators and other elected officials have to resign (give up their offices) to serve as Cabinet officials under the President. This is because the executive bra…nch is not derived from the legislative branch as in parliamentary democracies (i.e. Prime Minister and cabinet). Many secretaries have been former senators, such as Hillary Clinton and John Kerry.
