The Clinton Network

November 06, 1992|By Peter Honey, Mark Matthews, Nelson Schwartz, Richard H.P. Sia. | Peter Honey, Mark Matthews, Nelson Schwartz, Richard H.P. Sia.,Washington Bureau

In Friday's editions, The Sun incorrectly described attorney John D. Holum, one of several key advisers to President-elect Bill Clinton, as a registered lobbyist with Congress for utilities and railroads. Mr. Holum says he represents utility companies on regulations, litigation and enforcement at the state and local level but is no longer registered as a lobbyist before the Congress.

The Sun regrets the error.

As he prepares to move to the White House, President-elect Bill Clinton is getting advice from a broad network of people, some of whom may join his administration. Here are a few of those who have Mr. Clinton's ear:

Roger Altman, 46, vice-chairman of the Blackstone Group. A friend of Mr. Clinton since their days as students at Georgetown University and a former Treasury official in the Carter Administration, this investment banker is well respected on Wall Street. Expected to play a role in shaping economic policy, possibly at the Treasury Department.

FOR THE RECORD - CORRECTION

Bruce Babbitt, 54, ex-governor of Arizona; chairman of the League of Conservation Voters. Respected proponent of Western conservation issues. Had Mr. Clinton's ear during campaign.

Paul Begala, 31, campaign strategist and partner of campaign mastermind James Carville. Mr. Begala helped craft the Mr. Clinton's message and is likely to continue in the administration as a speech writer/spin doctor. Like Mr. Carville, he is tough and tenacious.

Samuel Berger, 47, partner in the Washington law firm of Hogan & Harston. He served in the Carter administration State Department as deputy director of policy planning. A trade expert, Mr. Berger also advised Mr. Clinton on the crisis in the former Yugoslav republics during the campaign.

Carol Browner, secretary of Florida Department of the Environment. Former legislative director for Sen. Al Gore.

Warren Christopher, 67, deputy secretary of state in the Carter administration, played a key role in negotiations that secured the release of U.S. hostages in Tehran. A prominent Los Angeles lawyer, he screened prospective vice presidential nominees before Mr. Clinton settled on Al Gore.

Ret. Adm. William J. Crowe Jr., 67, whom Ronald Reagan selected to serve two terms as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from. One of few Clinton advisers with extensive recent experience in U.S. military and foreign policy. Has ruled out nomination for defense secretary, but available for secretary of state or other post.

Rep. Lee H. Hamilton, 61, chairman of House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Europe and the Middle East; slated to take over full House committee in January. Was on Mr. Clinton's short list for vice president; also consulted by Clinton for his foreign policy views. One of the most respected, senior members of Congress. Seen by some as a candidate for secretary of state.

John D. Holum, 51, attorney with Los Angeles firm of O'Melveny and Myers; registered lobbyist for utilities and railroads. Member of policy planning staff at Carter State Department, longtime legislative director for Sen. George McGovern and Senate Foreign Relations Committee; senior adviser to Sen. Gary Hart's presidential campaigns; later joined Dukakis campaign. Defense and foreign policy adviser to Clinton.

Vernon Jordan, 57, possible transition team director. A former head of the National Urban League and a prominent Washington attorney in the law firm Akin, Gump, Hauer & Feld. Mr. Jordan could be the point man as Mr. Clinton's staff sorts through the mounds of resumes that will accompany the Democrats' return to power.

Mickey Kantor, 53, campaign chairman. A longtime behind-the-scenes power in the Democrat party, Mr. Kantor first assumed prominence during the last, desperate days before the New Hampshire primary, becoming a one-man nerve center for much of the campaign. A possible candidate for chief of staff.

Madeleine Kunin, 59, ex-governor of Vermont. Played role in selection of Al Gore for vice-president. Involved in transition team. Leading candidate to head Environmnetal Protection Agency.

W. Anthony Lake, 52, Mt. Holyoke College professor. Ex-director of policy planning in the Carter State Department; served on staff of Henry Kissinger's National Security Council. Chief foreign policy adviser to Sen. Edmund S. Muskie's presidential campaign. Leading candidate for national security adviser.

Ira Magaziner, 44, president of SJS Inc., a public policy consulting firm in Providence, R.I. Along with Robert Reich, attended Oxford with Clinton and is a former Rhodes scholar. He shares Mr. Reich's views on the importance of education and public investment.

Janne E. Nolan, 35, senior fellow of Foreign Policy Studies at Brookings Institution. Has advised Clinton campaign on arms control issues. At U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency in Carter years. Ex-staffer for Sen. Gary Hart on Senate Armed Services Committee, 1983-1986. Said to be on short list for ACDA director, top arms control post.
