    At least half of Obama's Cabinet chiefs are millionaires

    At least eight of President Obama's 14 Cabinet secretaries appointed so far are millionaires, most own homes worth far more than the national average, and at least half already spend much of their time in the nation's capital, financial disclosure reports and property records show.

    Most of the Cabinet members and nominees own real estate worth more than $1 million and some, like Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, own more than one million-dollar home, according to public property records.

    I would be surprised to find out that this is out of the norm. Do you want a Secretary of Commerce, Treasury, Agriculture, HHS, Transportation, Energy, DOJ or Interior that weren't VERY successful in the private sector? I don't. Sure, Labor, HUD, Education, VA, Defense and HS are probably going to come from more humble means. But 8-6 seems like the norm of Rich/Median.

    This is as relevant as how many homes McCain owned... A million dollars in real estate? What's that?... not very much.... I've got well over 1/2 million and barely have a pot to piss in....
