YSさんの受売り Ｆより Names surface for top Obama administration jobs オバマ政権の候補者リスト By The Associated Press http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081107/ap_on_el_pr/obama_potential_appointees President-elect Obama is weighing an array of Washington insiders and outsiders, including some Republicans, for top administration posts, according to Democratic officials. Obama has signaled that he will make no Cabinet-level appointments immediately, and his deliberations are tightly held by his closest aides. But that hasn't stopped Democrats and interest groups from circulating lists and offering recommendations to the Obama transition team. Some are surprising, such as former Bush Secretary of State Colin Powell as possible education secretary. Others are high-profile governors or members of Congress. Yet many are also little known to the general public ? and may remain so. Obama has less than 11 weeks to staff his new administration.
