As Barack Obama announces his choices for cabinet positions, agency heads and ambassadors, AllGov will provide profiles of each one to help Americans (and others) become familiar with the individuals who are running the U.S. government. The latest addition is Secretary of State-designate Hillary Rodham Clinton. Most Obama appointees are much less known. Many of the major proposed administration members can already be found in the AllGov News section: Appointments and Resignations. Here you will learn which cabinet member played professional basketball; which one is the heir to the Tootsie Roll/Double Bubble empire; which one was serving on the board of directors of four major federal contractors on the day Obama announced his nomination; and which one was paid $745,000 in one year to lobby for a single corporation.
