Obama Selects Attorney General
Eric Holder. Whoever that is, will become the first black head of the justice department. The only place we - and by we I mean me - have ever heard Eric Holder's name before is in passing when he was one of the chairs in the Obama vice president selection committee. I've done some homework though and it turns out Holder has close ties to Bill Clinton's administration where he served as D.C.'s U.S. attorney and later the deputy attorney general for the Justice Department, which is the position just beneath the one he is about to accept. According to everything I have read he has all of the right credentials for the job and could restore some much needed order to a department that has been out of hand recently, see Alberto Gonzales.
