the koh brothers are runnin' this

D.C., are you ready for the Koh Brothers? Here's a Wall Street Journal article on two of the newest additions to the Obama administration, the Harold and Howard Koh: Power Siblings Hit the Capital (Hint -- not the Emanuels).

Harold Koh, former dean of Yale Law School and now legal adviser at the State Department, and Howard Koh, assistant secretary for health at the Department of Health and Human Services, both were confirmed by the Senate late last month.

The sons of Korean immigrants, their rise to the Obama administration is only the latest success story in their family of overachievers. The Kohs' four siblings include a retired college dean, a university professor, a doctor and an artist. Daaaaamn.

Oh, and their mom holds a Ph.D in sociology and anthropology. Got that, Rahm, Zeke and Ari? The Emanuels have nothing on this family.
