MAKPA Quote of the Hour

From Elizabeth Bumiller in Monday's White House Letter, out of the New York Times
President Bush appears to have picked his new cabinet with the view that he has plenty of friends and doesn't need to make new ones.
She is complaining of the lack of opposition from the three new cabinet members and the new White House counsel. (She didn't mention Stephen Hadley at the NSC, who is also likely not to strenuously decry White House policy.)

What sort of dissent have past Presidents had from their cabinets? I'm think primarily, of course, of President Clinton, but one would think a noisy opponent as a Presidential advisor would be speedily replaced. Colin Powell, of course, was part of the President's team.)
