Romney attorney general list shrinks by one?


(Al Behrman - AP)
Probably should scratch veteran Washington litigator George Terwilliger from any short list of candidates to be attorney general in a Romney administration.

It’s not that he’s lacking in legal chops. A former federal prosecutor, Terwilliger, now a partner at White & Case, served as deputy attorney general and acting AG in the George H.W. Bush administration.

But word is he and three other veteran D.C. lawyers at White & Case — Dan Levin, Matt Miner and Bob Bittman — are soon moving over to Morgan, Lewis & Bockius.

So doesn’t look like Terwilliger will be available for government duty — for now.
