President-elect Barack Obama is expected to nominate Eric Holder as attorney general. Holder, who served as deputy attorney general during the Clinton Administration, would be the first African American to hold the top position at the Justice Department. Alex Cohen talks to Antoinette Bush, a close family friend of Holder, about the Washington lawyer.

"He's obviously very smart and a terrific lawyer," she says adding, "I think something people might not know about Eric is that he's a technology junkie."
