That well-known lefthander Barak Obama appointed experienced southpaw Lisa P. Jackson to be Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in December 2008.

EPA Administrator Jackson sign an agreement
The other left-handed member of President Obama's cabinet is his Secretary of Education. A good sign?

The hand preference of some Cabinet-level officers was hard to determine. Maybe the following could get in touch and let us know:
- White House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew?
- Acting Director of the Office of Management and Budget Jeffrey Zients?
- Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Alan Krueger?
But in any event out of the 23 Cabinet members and Cabinet-level officers only two are clearly left handed. Not more than expected from the general population.
