We should also be used to the fact that Obama is extremely loyal to the members of his team. Despite the disastrous launch of the HealthCare.gov website, the president declined to dismiss Kathleen Sebelius as head of the Department of Health and Human Services, allowing her eventually to leave on her own terms.
I don’t see how he can take a similar path, however, with Gen. Eric Shinseki at the VA. Sebelius at least made it clear that she understood the magnitude of the problem her department faced. Shinseki thus far has failed to telegraph comprehension, much less inspire confidence.
