76 Days to Go: Obama Gets Ready to Transition

The grueling campaign may be over, but the work has just started for Barack Obama. With construction on the White House inauguration set already underway, and with only 76 days until Bush's time is up, Obama has wasted no time assembling his new team, beginning first by offering Rahm Emanuel the role of chief of staff.

As for the other administration spots, three co-chairs are heading the transition team and the search for cabinet members. These transition specialists include: Valerie Jarrett (a friend and adviser of Obama), John D. Podesta (a Clinton chief of staff), and Pete Rouse (Obama’s Senate chief of staff).

One of the most urgent positions to fill is that of treasury secretary, a post now filled by Henry Paulson. A few names are floating around, including former treasury secretaries that served under either Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, or Ronald Reagan. New Jersey's governor and former Goldman Sachs CEO Jon Corzine is also said to be in the running.

I'm looking forward to hearing who makes the cut for Obama's team of rivals!
