Cleary (DC) or O'Melveny (DC)?

Which would you choose? I like Cleary's antitrust and corporate work and like O'Melveny's antitrust, litigation, and political law groups. Basically, I'm potentially interested in several areas, but like antitrust a lot, and am mostly concerned with finding the best overall experience. What are the pros/cons of these offices?

If you have the grades/writing ability - OMM's appellate group is freakin' amazing. (Walter Dellinger + Sri Srinivasan)

Cleary's office has about 100 lawyers; OMM about 150. Not much of a difference there. Other questions... Would one firm provide more of an advantage for clerkships? And going forward, how much weight should be placed on recent layoffs? (OMM laid off about 10% of its attorneys firm-wide, while Cleary had no official layoffs.)
