While the focus is on the Clintons and their roles in freeing two American journalists from imprisonment in North Korea, political strategist John Podesta is also sharing the glory.

Podesta, chief of staff in the Clinton White House, accompanied his former boss on the trip to Pyongyang and - according to Andrea Mitchell of MSNBC - appeared in court on behalf of the journalists.

Like Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Podesta bridges the old Democratic administration and the new.

He was transition chief for Barack Obama and now heads the Washington think tank, the Center for American Progress.

His brother, Tony Podesta, heads Podesta Group, the fasting growing lobby firm on K Street.
