$$: $198,000. Which pales, you know, beside what the job is worth afterward, when you rejoin the gigantic multinational firm you've been steering business to for the last eight years.
Duties: Well, before the current administration, you'd have to say virtually none. Now, who knows?
The upside: Great title, decent perks, very little job responsibility (except for Dick Cheney).
The downside: Everybody makes fun of the office and thinks it's completely superfluous (except for Dick Cheney).
The dark side: You da man. What have you got to show for it? (Except for Dick Cheney).
Where you go from here: Back to Halliburton.
