Obama to Name Nation's First Black Attorney General?


Reports have broken that Barack Obama will appoint lawyer Eric Holder to the position of attorney general. A former judge, Holder also served as Bill Clinton's deputy attorney general and led Obama's VP search team. He would be the fist African-American to lead the Justice Department.

Newseek reports that Holder accepted the job, but an announcement will not be made until after Holder is officially vetted and until Obama chooses Treasury and State Department secretaries.
