    This is a political stunt, though. Holder will stay on through the 2014 elections and if the Dems keep the Senate he will "reconsider" his choice.

    You got that Right JM.....also what do you think about BO saying this is bittersweet? Despite knowing for months that Holder was stepping down. Holder complained before of not being able to handle the pressure. Plus with the way BO peep does things. It more than likely made the job even harder.



    .


    Among the potential candidates the White House is considering to replace Eric Holder Jr. as attorney general are Donald Verrilli Jr., the current U.S. solicitor general; Kamala Harris, California’s attorney general; and Sheldon Whitehouse, a two-term Democratic senator from Rhode Island. White House officials have known about Holder’s plans to step down for months, but the decision wasn’t finalized until Holder and President Obama discussed it in a one-on-one conversation over Labor Day weekend. As recently as this August, Obama was still trying to persuade Holder to stay, according to a source familiar with the conversation. While vacationing around the same time on Martha’s Vineyard, Obama gently pressured Holder to rethink his plans to retire, even waxing nostalgic about the heady days of the 2008 campaign when the two men cemented their personal friendship.

    Obama knows that getting a new attorney general confirmed by the Senate — which could possibly be controlled by the Republicans come January — will be challenging, particularly deep in the second term of his presidency. White House officials have been quietly vetting potential candidates for months, according to knowledgeable sources. One source identified Verrilli as the leading candidate right now. Verrilli gained national attention when he defended the legal challenge to the Affordable Care Act before the U.S. Supreme Court in 2012. It was widely panned as a wobbly performance, but he prevailed in the end. Obama called to praise him both after the oral arguments and after the victory. Verrilli also served as a lawyer in the Obama White House, where he was well respected for his legal acumen and beloved for his gracious personality.....snip~

    Donald Verrilli, Kamala Harris top list to replace Attorney General Eric Holder


    Also.....that's who some Officials think. Earlier in the thread I mentioned who Valerie Jarrett had brought to BO's Attention back in 2012.

    Don't take my word for this,just wait and see.
    Think Obama will replace him with someone just as radical?

    You don't have to respond, its a rhetorical question.

    Well, he's certainly a contender. He should never have been AG in the first place.

    No, this diatribe does not warrant a response from liberals. It is outrageous.

    Maybe they're as dumbfounded as I am by the fact that the Obama WH is engaging Al Sharpton in discussions about Holder's replacement.
