What is the most difficult job in a president's cabinet?
Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, Press Secretary, National Security Advisor, Other?
I'd say the Secretary of State. I take it that that is the equivalent of Foreign Secretary, or Minister of Foreign Affairs - the guy or gal who is supposed to establish or keep the nation in a good relationship with other nations. Not an easy job. For take a look down the years and you will find that the same old warring attitudes prevail. Nothing seems to change. It's Israel against the Arab nations. It's tribe against tribe in Africa. It's Croations and Serbs. Now it's Russians and Ukrainians. Endeavours to bring about peace and harmoney between the collective egos of masses of people must be one of the most exasperating jobs anyone can take on.
I'd imagine the most difficult and tasking job would be the Secretary of Pinocchio Defense. Having to sand down a President's nose every day has to be a thankless, herculean task.
Thanks to all that lying, reforestation is now well under way.
You echo my thoughts exactly, the Press Secretary who is charged with trying to field all those embarrassing questions about the lies told and illegalities conducted must be a hard 'grind' to bear with.
Funny bethperry, thanks for answering. Good point, aguasliver.
That's easy. The most difficult cabinet position is U.S. Attorney General. The cabinet post was established in 1870, when our 18th president was in office - Grant. We have had only 26 presidents since Grant, but 82 Attorney Generals. Almost none of them worked out. Most of 'em have serious problems with application of "justice for ALL." Plus, I think they're the fall guys for horrible administrations sometimes.
I would say that it is the man who stands beside the President.
