Susan & Dawn
President Obama has accomplished some good things as POTUS. And he has had some failings that were beyond his control.
But there are two very similar events, where POTUS had a lot of control over, where he absolutely failed.
First, POTUS nominated Dawn Johnson to be head of OLC at the Dept of Justice. Then her let Ms. Johnson twist in the wind for 14 months, before she with drew her name.
Now, subsequent to the election, Ms. Susan Rice’s name is floated as possibly the POTUS choice for Sec of State. And at the first POTUS Presser after the election he vigorously defends her. And then lets this supremely qualified, career diplomat twist in the wind until she with draws her name yesterday.
I expect more from a President.
