Best Answer

A presidential appointment is one to a position in the judicial branch, the presidential Cabinet, or in any federal agency within the behemoth that is our bureaucracy. Many appointees undergo a nomination process where they are either confirmed or rejected by the United State Senate. There are several thousand other appointments to other positions as members of boards and heads of agencies which do not require confirmation. Those which require confirmation by the Senate are designated in the Constitution or in legislation which establishes the position involved. Military commissions require confirmation, as well.

The congressional appointment is the process in which the House of Representatives is redistributed to each state according to its population. Every 10 years, the number of representatives each state sends into the House of Representatives changes according to how many people live at that moment in the state.
