Eric Holder Reportedly Tapped for Attorney General:
Newsweek is reporting that Eric Holder has been picked to be Obama's nominee for Attorney General. This is a very good pick, I think: Holder was my favorite of the folks who had been mentioned as being on the short list. Holder was the Deputy AG back when I was at DOJ during Clinton's second term, and my impression at the time was that he was smart and professional. A very good choice, I think.
