    Holder will retain his office until 2017.
    This announcement gives him a free hand to increase his influence on the DOJ and make congress look even stupider than they have been.

    I wonder what the real reason is? And don't tell he wants to spend more time with his family.

    That is extreme wishful thinking. When one steps down, they go away. No one resigns effective on the last day of an administration.

    I'll put my two cents in on the replacement.

    I'll pick Kamala Harris, the current Attorney General of California, Democrat, black female, and someone Obama appears attracted to.

    Maybe Rahm is looking for a job. He wants to ban Chic-fil-A from the entire US.

    Do you know how utterly ridiculous the Senate would look if it attempted to blocked conformation of the President's nominee to Attorney General? Even more freaking irrelevant than now.

    They did it at least twice against Bush picks, didn't they?

    Or was that Supreme Court picks?

    It's perfectly fine and justifiable when Democrats do it to Republican nominees....
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    If Mr. Holder does resign, maybe he will have more time to get back to defending the Islamist war criminals being held at Guantanamo. He devoted quite a bit of his time to that, at the white-shoe law firm he used to work for.

    How about that full-dress trial in federal court in New York our Eric wanted to give jihadists, including the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed? This person has no legal right whatever to any such thing, of course--in fact should have had his greasy neck unceremoniously stretched on a gallows years ago--but I know how much Mr. Holder wants to give it to him. So did the President he works for.
