Elder Statesman
« on: October 12, 2016, 10:09:46 am »

Just curious as to how the Elder Statesman rank works? I thought it was given to retired members of the Cabinet but have noticed that there ar emembers of the Cabinet who are no longer members of the Cabinet and aren't Elder Statesman.

In simplest and probably least politically correct terms: It's an honorary title bestowed upon members of the cabinet who had a profound impact on TLO. A vote is put up by cabinet members to hand the honor out.

Ah, okay. Is the vote automatic or what?

Voting is not automatic, it has to be called by a Cabinet member. Also, the President can create Elder Statespersons through executive order. The President also decides what special access (if any) ES' get beyond access to the secure Cabinet forum.
