    Secretary Eric K. Shinseki

    The following positions have the status of Cabinet-rank:

    White House Chief of Staff

    Bill Daley

    Environmental Protection Agency

    Administrator Lisa P. Jackson

    Office of Management & Budget

    Jacob J. Lew, Director

    United States Trade Representative

    Ambassador Ronald Kirk

    United States Ambassador to the United Nations

    Ambassador Susan Rice

    Council of Economic Advisers

    Chairman Austan Goolsbee

    UPDATE: @Sue, the question asked about the cabinet. Czars are not cabinet level positions and are not Cabinet rank positions. You can make snide remarks about Obama's use of czars, but it has nothing to do with the question or my answer. You just wanted to throw in a crack, which is misplaced.

    I am impressed by Jay's answer but that doesn't include all those "Czars" that he has illegally appointed (appointed without Senate confirmation).
