A Democratic official says President-elect Barack Obama plans to name his picks for U.N. ambassador, attorney general and homeland security secretary at a news conference Monday.

Obama has settled on Susan Rice, his campaign foreign policy adviser, for the U.N. post. For attorney general, the pick is Eric Holder, who helped run Obama's vice presidential search. At the Homeland Security Department, it's Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano.

Those names had been discussed before for those jobs. But a Democratic official said Sunday that Obama will make the three announcements official -- along with Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state and members of national security team -- Monday
in Chicago.

The official spoke on a condition of anonymity because the announcements were not authorized for public release.
