Have I missed the speculation about …

… who Minnesota’s next U.S. Attorney will be?

Barack Obama gets his pick, and by custom, the state’s Democratic senator(s) get a lot of say. Last time a Democrat entered office, Bill Clinton and Paul Wellstone picked David Lillehaug, currently Al Franken’s recount barrister.

Trivia question: Can you name the current U.S. Attorney for Minnesota? The office’s website isn’t much help.

Let’s just say Frank J. Magill, Jr. has kept a much lower profile than his predecessor, Rachel Paulose.

    I’m guessing you’re thinking it won’t be Norman Coleman….
