Is Sally Yates on track to be the next US Attorney General?

The question in the title of this post is prompted by this new Reuters piece headlined "Biden's possible attorney general pick has moderate track record: progressive critics."  Here are excerpts: President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to end the federal death penalty and eliminate mandatory minimum sentences, but some progressives say a potential pick for attorney general to carry out those reforms may not be the one to enact bold changes.
