This template is too large and gives almost no information. Who will recognize a the Secretarys of State by their last name? Isn't Template:Succession box enough? This is just clutter.--Birgitte§β ʈ Talk 20:54, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

This template is identical to templates used for all the other cabinet secretaries. Along with Presidents, VPs, and many others. —Mark Adler (markles) 22:23, 12 January 2006 (UTC)
Well I guess it could be worse. I just looked at John M. Clayton and the template for him be being a Senator from Delaware is worse. I just think these political templates are getting out hand. Succesion boxes should be enough with a big table with more information available at the article for the office. Elizabeth I doesn't have a big Monarch of England template and the names on that would actually be recognizable.--Birgitte§β ʈ Talk 14:02, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

Update needed to template so it reflects Tillerson's confirmation to the position, see sources at Rex Tillerson. RA0808 talkcontribs 20:12, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Please complete the full year 1789 in the section head, so it reads: 1781-1789, per Wikipedia style for non-consecutive years. Thanks. Randy Kryn (talk) 11:24, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
