Meet Kathryn Ruemmler, the New White House Counsel for Pres.Obama

There is a new top lawyer at the White House. Kathryn Ruemmler, a 40 year-old graduate of Georgetown Law and editor of its law review, was recently appointed as President Obama's new White House Counsel. Previously she was the principal deputy counsel and worked under Bob Bauer, who left the White House to work on the reelection campaign.

So not only is she the first woman to hold the job since Harriet Myers, she is also the youngest! Before coming to the White House she also served as principal deputy attorney general at the Justice Department and before that she worked as a federal prosecutor and a partner at a top law firm. Earlier in her career she also served as an associate council to President Bill Clinton in 2000.

And to top it all off she once was an Enron prosecutor during that time and was the youngest member of the team and delivered the closing arguments in of the biggest corporate crime cases in the country.

I'll say that Pres. Obama picked a pretty awesome lady with a stellar resume!
