Attorney General Eric Holder, who endured what was arguably the most embattled term of any Obama Cabinet member, said Thursday he doesn’t know whether he’ll stick around for another four years.
"Do I have some gas left in the tank? It has been an interesting and tough four years. I really just don’t know," Holder said, during a session at the University of Baltimore Law School.
The comments effectively kick off Washington’s guessing game over what President Obama’s inner circle will look like in a second term. The president could try to retain the current Cabinet to whatever extent possible — or hit the reset with a broad reshuffling, perhaps sending a signal to Republicans in Congress that he wants a new start.
