Solis resigns from cabinet; Holder, others to stay

We're learning a bit more about who is and isn't going to be in President Barack Obama's second-term cabinet.

U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis (pictured) has submitted her resignation, CNN learned Wednesday. She said in a letter to colleagues that she discussed the matter with her family over the holidays in California has "decided to begin a new future."

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, meanwhile, will remain in the cabinet for now, a White House official tells CNN. It's unclear how long Holder will stay into a second term, but the official said he and Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki are not expected to leave in the near future.

    The policys are put in place but they who put them there know better than stay in place when they come into play.
    Better to find safe havens and bide their time until nexxt election cycle or cash in on contacts and unsignanle contracts while they can.
    The elites don't fall as there are always sacraficial goats just waiting to get in to prove their loyalty.

    Time to get results of contacts and unsignable contracts and reap the rewards of loyalty.
