Early word on the shape of the Obama administration:

  1. Chief of Staff: Jeremiah Wright
  2. Secretary of State: Rashid Khalidi
  3. Secretary of Defense: Bill Ayers
  4. Attorney-General: Bernardine Dohrn
  5. Secretary of the Treasury: Tony Rezko

Obviously, that still leaves a lot of posts to be filled, but the feeling is that given the current state of crisis in the country the new administration needs to act swiftly to fill the major jobs and these are them.

UPDATE: New appointments — Franklin Raines at HUD, Michael Phleger for the office of faith-based initiatives.
