The President’s A-Team Barack Obama adds more members to his team

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

By Nellie Gonzalez Cutler

President-elect Barack Obama won’t officially take office until January 20, 2009. But he is already moving quickly to select the top advisers who will help him govern the nation. On Monday, Obama named his national security team. For the important post of Secretary of State, Obama nominated his one-time rival, New York senator Hillary Clinton. The current Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, will remain on the job. Rounding out the team are: Eric Holder as Attorney General, Arizona governor Janet Napolitano as Homeland Security Secretary, Susan Rice as ambassador to the United Nations (U.N.) and retired Marine general James L. Jones as National Security Advisor. Clinton, Holder, Napolitano and Rice must be confirmed by the Senate.

On Monday, Obama said he would make the ambassador to the U.N. a Cabinet-level post.
