Thanks for your question. Here is a list of the cabinet members that
left President Clinton's administration:
Secretary of State: Warren Christopher
Secretary of the Treasury: Lloyd Bentsen, Robert Rubin
Secretary of Defense: Les Aspin, William Perry
Secretary of Agriculture: Mike Espy
Secretary of Commerce: Ronald H. Brown, Mickey Kantor, William M. Daley
Secretary of Labor: Robert Reich
Secretary of Housing and Urban Development: Henry G. Cisneros
Secretary of Transportation: Federico F. Pena
Secretary of Energy: Hazel R. O'Leary, Frederico F. Pena
Secretary of Veterans' Affairs: Jesse Brown
A bit of unconfirmed research that was prior to the current resignations:
"In the past 8 presidencies, there have been an average of 26 Cabinet
members per administration, with just under an average of 4 Cabinet
positions that remained unchanged throughout the Presidential term.
(Of the 8 Presidencies, 3 were two term. I excluded Kennedy's term due
to his death--it seemed way out of whack with all the other
Bush currently has had 17 Cabinet level officials, though to be fair,
he also has one more position as well. If you look at the two term
Presidencies (Nixon, Reagan, and Clinton), they had 31, 33 and 29
positions, respectively, and only Clinton had more than one position
stay the same for all 8 years."

Do you specifically which ones resigned at the end of his first term.
(For what I really want to know, Ron Brown, for example, would not be
counted, since he died while in office.)
I will go ahead and rate, but a clarification would be appreciated. Thanks.
