    Question post vs. position

    Washington -- US President-elect Barack Obama plans on Monday to announce six experienced hands to fill top administration posts, moving at record speed to name the leadership team that will guide his presidency through a time of war and recession.
    Hello! What's the difference between "post' and 'position'? Can I replace 'post' with 'position' in above context? Thanks!

    Re: post vs. position

    a post is a position of duty or employment, to which a person is assigned or appointed.

    In the sentence, I think either word could have been used.
