article imageOp-Ed: Obama cleans house after his 2012 reelection victory

Obama cleans house following his reelection victory. Petraeus resigns as CIA chief, Hillary Clinton resigns as Secretary of State, and other government officials plan to depart from their positions. Can anyone replace these charismatic personalities?
From ABC News: “ The resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus has brought a sudden and unexpected end to the public career of a four-star general who led U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq and was thought to be a potential candidate for president.”
From Lawyer Herald:” The once rival of President Barrack Obama in the 2008 elections and current Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton, says that despite Tuesday night's victory, she plans to resign from a post as Secretary of State.”
Analysis
After the Obama administration won a second term, they began house cleaning. The two figures primarily linked to the Benghazi disaster, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Gen. Petraeus, are gone. The figure most linked with Fast and Furious disaster, Eric Holder, will be gone. The figure most linked to the administration’s economic failures, Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner, will be gone. Only Obama remains because he ran out the clock on his scandals, and now he kicks everyone associated with his failures out of his administration.
