The makeup of President-elect Barack Obama’s cabinet and senior advisers began to take shape Wednesday as the fashion industry kept a vigilant watch on who would fill key trade and economic slots overseeing billions of dollars worth of trade and global commerce.
Obama was said to be close to making his first key appointment: Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D., Ill.) as his chief of staff. A rising star in the Democratic party, Emanuel was a former senior adviser to President Bill Clinton’s White House.
