Attorney General Eric Holder might not serve in President Barack Obama's second term.

"That's something that I'm in the process now of trying to determine," Holder reportedly said.

Reuters reports:

Attorney General Eric Holder said on Thursday he has not decided whether to stay on as the chief U.S. law enforcement officer in President Barack Obama's second term.

Holder, speaking to law students at the University of Baltimore, said he still must speak with Obama and with his own family and ask himself, "Do I have some gas left in the tank?"
