Looks like the rumors I blogged on some time ago are true. I’ll just link to my earlier post–everything in there still stands. Panetta seems like a strong choice for Defense from my position, a realist-leaning dude with an extensive budget experience, and while Petraeus seems a less likely choice for CIA, at least he has some pertinent experience and has a record of competence, which puts him above most past CIA directors off the bat.
