Obama Nominates Former Top RIAA Lawyer To Be Solicitor General

Of course, I find it kind of amusing that Darrell Issa and anti-Google lobbying group Consumer Watchdog are still claiming that the administration is in Google's pocket. As far as I know, many of the former top Googlers who did go to the White House have since left (some in frustration), while Obama has been hiring all sorts of folks who are about as anti-Google as can be into top roles. Beyond Verilli, Obama has also hired Bill Daley, who had been president of SBC (now AT&T), which has gone out of its way for years to try to take down Google. Where exactly is Google's "power" in the administration these days?
