Inheriting some monstrous challenges and bracing for the unexpected that confronts every President, Barack Hussein Obama so far has fielded a "team of rivals" for his Cabinet and chief advisers with varying inclinations, experiences, ambitions, and egos.

The agenda is daunting: tackling an economic stimulus involving perhaps $500 billion, steps toward energy independence, changes in health-care insurance, and a tide of federal red ink. Obama has tapped a broad range of players with experience in Washington and beyond, from people he knew and trusted as an Illinois Senator to two former rivals for the Democratic Presidential nomination.
