Is Eric Holder the Right Pick for Attorney General?

Hosted by

During the Bush Administration, career attorneys have resigned from the Justice Department over political intrusion into hiring and the filing of cases, the authorization of brutal interrogation techniques and eavesdropping without court warrants. Today, Barack Obama named Eric Holder as his choice for Attorney General. Holder was named superior court judge for the District of Columbia by Ronald Reagan. Bill Clinton made him US Attorney for the District and, four years later, Deputy Attorney General. We get two perspectives on the controversy over the top man at the Justice Department.
