Obama announces Clinton, Gates for his cabinet
“President-elect Barack Obama on Monday announced a foreign policy team led by former campaign rival Hillary Rodham Clinton and President Bush’s defense secretary, Robert Gates — both early supporters of a war in Iraq that he opposed and will be seeking to wind down.”
“At a news conference, Obama also introduced retired Marine Gen. James Jones as White House national security adviser, former Justice Department official Eric Holder as attorney general and Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano as secretary of homeland security.”
“The announcements rounded out the top tier of the team that will advise the incoming chief executive on foreign and national security issues in an era marked by wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and terrorism around the globe.”
