"Some" in the White House want Eric Holder, the embattled attorney general, to step down, according to a report.
"Over the course of four and a half years, no other member of President Obama’s cabinet has been at the center of so many polarizing episodes or the target of so much criticism," reports the New York Times. "While the White House publicly backed Mr. Holder as he tried to smooth over the latest uproar amid new speculation about his future, some in the West Wing privately tell associates they wish he would step down, viewing him as politically maladroit. But the latest attacks may stiffen the administration’s resistance in the near term to a change for fear of emboldening critics."
And unnamed Democrats are telling the Times that "The White House is apoplectic about him, and has been for a long time."
