New York Posts predicts Eric Holder next to go

Now that Johnson is gone, this New York Post editorial believes Holder should go as well:
Now Obama needs to turn his attention to another member of that committee - Eric Holder, a former No. 2 in the Clinton Justice Department who played a key role in processing the infamous last-minute pardon of the notorious tax-cheat fugitive Marc Rich.

(The committee's third member is the dowager princess of American politics, Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg - by definition, above reproach.)

I know we are all supposed to be in awe of members of the Kennedy Family yet I can't claim to understand the reasoning behind having Kennedy selected as one of the three on the vetting committee. I think the vetting process is important but I'd much rather see high placed political consultants who do this for a living being involved.

It's an important decision as it could have a huge impact on either luring more moderate voters to the ticket or turning them away.
