From CNN’s Ed Henry and John King

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Former Clinton Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder is President-elect Barack Obama’s choice for the position of attorney general, according to two prominent Democrats involved in transition matters.

Holder, who is still being vetted, has indicated he will accept the job if it is offered, the sources said.

If confirmed, Holder will be the first African-American to lead the Justice Department.

Holder, 57, co-chaired President-elect Obama’s vice presidential selection process. A graduate of Columbia University and former federal prosecutor, he is currently a partner at the Washington law firm of Covington & Burling.
