Obama to hold first post-election Cabinet meeting

President Obama will hold his first meeting with his Cabinet since his re-election win this afternoon, according to his public schedule.

Several of those Cabinet members are expected to leave in the coming months, leaving Obama searching for replacements for key vacancies.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner have said they’ll step down. (One of the top contenders for State has run into some opposition on Capitol Hill.)

No other Cabinet members have said they plan to leave, but the heads of the departments of Defense, Justice and Transportation may quit in the coming months. The position of commerce secretary already is vacant.

Check out our story on vacancies and possible replacements.
