Here's an interesting statistic from Al Kamen's column Monday morning: 42 percent of Obama's administration in Senate confirmed positions so far also worked in the Clinton administration.
And if they appear to come from elite, private schools, well, they do. In fact, about one-fourth of those named so far either attended or taught at Harvard, to name just one esteemed institution. On another front, men are outnumbering women by more than 2 to 1 in the top jobs.
As of Friday, Obama had choices for 153, or 31 percent, of the 486 senior positions The Washington Post is tracking.
