The AP reports that Obama has tapped former Georgia Senator Sam Nunn, once a possible VP candidate, to help guide his Pentagon transition. Former Secretary of State Warren Christopher will perform a similar task at Foggy Bottom.
For what it's worth, Nunn said in late October that he didn't want an administration job.
UPDATE: The transition team said this morning that Christopher isn't an adviser. "Secretary Christopher is deeply respected in the United States and throughout
the international community. However, he is
not playing a role in the transition process. There's a lot of disinformation
out there," said spokesperson Stephanie Cutter.
