The Washington Post Company today launched Who Runs Gov, a site containing profiles of people who serve in top posts in the U.S. government.

The site launched today with 250 profiles, from President Obama to prospective attorney general Eric Holder to a handful of Hill staffers like Blue Dog Coalition Communications Director Kristen Hawn.

Profiles outline each power player's path to power, resume at a glance, why he/she matters, and politics.

The site uses a wiki format, though registered users will not be able to edit profiles until later this year, the site says. The site is powered by MindTouch, a company that sells wiki-style web platforms.
