Former secretary of state Warren Christopher and respected Democratic former senator Sam Nunn will head president-elect Barack Obama’s transition teams in key government departments, CNN reported Wednesday.

Christopher, 83, will lead the transition team for the State Department. He led it from 1993 to 1997 under Democratic president Bill Clinton, and was deputy secretary of state 1977-1981 under Democrat Jimmy Carter.

Nunn, 70, will lead the handover team for the Department of Defense. He represented Georgia in the US senate from 1992 to 1997, and for eight years headed the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Since retiring he has focused on national security issues, especially on nuclear disarmament.
