Real World Info on Other Secretary Articles Edit

Sould rw information be removed from the Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense pages as well? When I added this page, I was following the format used on those two pages. --Wydok 10:21, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

I don't think so, and the rule is hardly set in stone. I just posted on this topic in the Situation Room, so feel free to come and comment. --StBacchus 10:27, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
Basic establishing information is usually required for things that aren't outright explained, but for the most part, only information relevant to the show should be provided in articles. External links can provide more information if need be. --Proudhug 10:40, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
I agree. The removed information was relevant, though. That the Secretary of the Treasury is the head of the Department of the Treasury is basic establishing information. The line of succession has come up multiple times on the show. --StBacchus 12:41, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
But the line of succession hasn't been established outside of the vice president following the president and the department of the treasury has not been mentioned if I remember correctly. Perhaps the best establishing position is to say its part of the cabinet and provide a link to that. We have far more information on the secretary of defense, and we should probably cut down on the secretary of state page as well. - Xtreme680 16:15, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
I agree, Xtreme680. Saying it's part of the cabinet is enough of an establishing base. --Proudhug 16:20, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

I still don't understand why this has been editted back to only say that the Secretary of Treasury on Day 2 voted "No" on removing Palmer. If all other information has been removed, shouldn't this also be done to the Secretaries of State and Defense as well as the Attorney General? --Wydok 01:06, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
