The contempt vote Thursday against Attorney General Eric Holder could
spell trouble for President Obama -- not just for his administration's
efforts to lock down Fast and Furious documents, but also for his
re-election campaign.



Holder over the past three-and-a-half years has become, according to
one polling outfit, the most unpopular member of Obama's Cabinet. The
attorney general is associated with a string of controversial decisions
-- from his response to the Fast and Furious probe to his department's
suits against state immigration laws to the campaign to halt GOP-led
voter ID laws in Florida and elsewhere -- that have riled conservatives,
even some Democrats.



The contempt vote, for his critics, is one more notch against Holder.
And it could fuel his becoming a divisive figure during the
presidential campaign as opponents try to cast him as an albatross
around Obama's neck.

    The public has a short attention span and there are lots of shiny objects out there to distract them.

    "Swing" voters aren't going to care about this, and everyone else has known who they're going to vote for since last year some time.

    Yet another right-wing blunder - they are soooooo desperate they will do anything/say anything and it's all so unproductive and petty!
