Politico.com notes Lanny Davis, a former special counsel in the Clinton White House, says Eric Holder is the "most qualified person in America" for the position of Attorney General in the Obama administration. Why? Says Davis, Holder has a record of "high service at the Justice Department" (as a former U.S. attorney) and is "highly respected on both sides of the aisle for his professional conduct while at the Justice Department." Davis must have not have heard of the whole Marc Rich fugitive pardon thing (see our posts on Holder and the Rich pardon here and here) and that little deal with the terrorists that Clinton also pardoned (see our posts on Holder and the FALN pardons here and here). See the full Politico post here.
