Obama Announces National Security Team On Monday

10:40 a.m. ET to be exact.

We all know the names by now.

Gen. Jim Jones for National Security Adviser. Robert Gates for Defense Secretary. And Hillary Clinton for Secretary of State.

CNN has the other names…

Also, two sources close to the transition said Obama will nominate Susan Rice as United Nations ambassador, Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano as Homeland Security secretary and Eric Holder as Attorney General.

No surprises from the No Drama Obama team, and I have to think that this new “leaky” administration is the right way to go. Sure, on the campaign trail Obama’s team was all about strategy, so they kept their cards close to their chests, but it’s a different ball game now so the rules needed to change.

One thing’s for sure…Hillary Clinton will have no problem fitting in.
