A further note on transition speculation/reporting. An awful lot of the questions you’re seeing people try to answer — who will be Attorney-General? — have a paradoxical quality to them. Most likely there is no answer. Of course someone will become Attorney-General but the point is that this isn’t a secret, it’s almost certainly a decision that hasn’t been made. It would be extremely difficult to formulate a decision, ask someone, have that person accept, and then keep the whole thing under wraps for an extended period of time.

If you want to add some actual information to your speculation, I’d check out the video of CAPAF’s event on presidential transitions from back in October. No guarantees, but John Podesta is president of CAPAF and I hear he has Barack Obama’s phone number.
