Lawyers Who May Run America

The November issue of the ABA Journal has two covers: the front cover features a painting of John McCain taking the oath of office and the back cover features Barack Obama taking the oath. The main story behind the dueling covers is titled The Lawyers Who May Run America and lists the attorneys who may be appointed to senior positions in a McCain or Obama administration including possible nominees to open seats on the US Supreme Court.

The article lists attorneys who are favorites to join the administration of the winning candidate, according to interviews with people who know each candidate well.
