She’s probably looking to find a way to avoid the inquiry over the illegal use of private email for official discourse
(USA Today) The pre-second term exodus from the Obama administration continued Thursday with the resignation of Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa Jackson.
In a statement, Jackson said she is “confident the ship is sailing in the right direction” after nearly four years as EPA administrator, and she is looking forward to new challenges.
Unfortunately, this means that Obama can appoint yet another hardcore progressive who hates Americans having affordable energy. Perhaps Republican Senators can take a hard line on whoever is nominated, like they did with Susan Rice, and are doing with John Kerry (via Nice Deb)
(Washington Examiner) Republican senators will refuse to confirm Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., as Secretary of State until the nation’s current top diplomat, Hillary Clinton, testifies about her handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack.
“The Senate is expected to take up Kerry’s nomination in early January, but multiple Republican senators have already said they won’t agree to a vote on Kerry’s nomination until Clinton testifies about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi,” The Cable’s Josh Rogin notes.
We’ll see if they have the fortitude to hold fast.
