Legal expert calls on Biden to nominate Obama for Attorney General

Writing in The Hill newspaper, Douglas Kmiec argued that while Obama leading the Department of Justice would be unprecedented, it would help Biden to show that he’s governing “in the national interest.”…

“Biden’s almost-plagiarized overuse of the red state/blue state metaphor from the 2008 election needs a definite boost of authenticity and actual demonstration of applied fairness,” Kmiec writes.

“Instead of continuing to borrow Barack Obama’s trade line, he needs Obama himself. The fastest way to re-establish the rule of law is for Biden to nominate Obama as attorney general.”
