Eric Holder's Clinton-ista Past

Another ghost of Clinton past will be joining the Obama administration. Eric Holder, who has recently accepted President-elect Obama's invitation to join his cabinet as Attorney General. While Holder will be the first African American appointed to ever hold this office, he is no stranger to working for a former President. Holder worked in the Clinton administration and was involved in the Presidential pardon of Marc Rich before Clinton left office. Although Clinton was the man behind Rich's pardon, Holder did play a significant role in the pardon oversight process, as he gave recommendations to the President. He even admits his wrong doing!

If Obama wants to be the great change agent in Washington, then he needs to rid himself of corruption from the Clinton Administration. Otherwise, we will no doubt have front row seats to an interesting four years.
