Leibowitz for FTC?

Washington rumors are that FTC Commissioner Jon Leibowitz will be promoted to head up the commission after Barack Obama takes over on Tuesday.

Leibowitz, a Democratic commissioner with broad Capitol Hill experience, is expected to be named to head the FTC, at first in an acting capacity, the sources said. Commissioner William Kovacic, a Republican, now holds that job.

The five-person FTC also has an open seat.

The rumors go on to say that Einer Elhauge, a Harvard law professor who has advised the new president, will be appointed to head the Justice Department's antitrust division.
