BREAKING: AG Eric Holder Resigning, Sort Of
Eric Holder apparently stepping down, but will wait to resign until a successor is named.
Which, thanks to SCOTUS, cannot be done until after the elections when the Senate is back in session. Expect the GOP to stall until January, when they'll have more seats in the Senate. If they have 51 and control of the Senate, I can't see anyone Obama would appoint as getting confirmed.
Effectively, Holder may remain until the end of President Obama's term if that happens I mean, do you expect anyone Obama would pick would get through a confirmation hearing if the GOP's in charge?
Senate control always was important, but is even more so now.
