Is there some sort of scandal on the horizon?

Has there been an Obama cabinet resignation where there wasn't?

They're made for each other: the college system with the least actual educational content in the nation and the "manager" who's done the most damage to American national security.

Good God! The California university system is in a shambles now. Based on her track record, how is she going to improve it? Or, is she the person to take it completely down?

She's been nothing but scandals. I don't know if a new one is coming or one of the old ones is about to blow up.

Why do we even need a "Homeland Security Director"? It's all very Soviet.

Stanford is a private university and not part of the UC system. I’m sure Ms. Rice is thankful for that...

Wait. What monster can Obama appoint next. Lois Lerner or her clone?

Ah, "but whomever still needs to be confirmed by the Senate" you protest.

Not to worry. Harry "No more hangers!!! filibusters" Reid is still on the job.

Maybe she has skimmed 'enough' of the ammo budget to retire comfortably somewhere that doesn't extradite to the US.

She can blame any shambles on her predecessor, cook the books, and draw another retirement benefit when she leaves...
