Cabinet Capers

February 1983
National Review;2/4/1983, Vol. 35 Issue 2, p94
The article comments on cabinet appointments made by U.S. President Ronald Reagan as of February 2005. Recently, the president appointed two women in the cabinet, a move that is arguably an effort to close the gender gap. Margaret Heckler has been appointed secretary of the Health and Human Services Department. Heckler is a strong opponent of abortion. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Dole has been appointed secretary of the Transportation Department. Her predecessor, Drew Lewis, has been outstanding in the job and will certainly be heard from again.
