Attorney General Eric Holder apparently has enough "gas left in the tank." He's staying in his position as the head of the Department of Justice for Obama's second term.

President Obama is holding on to Eric Holder as the nation’s top law-enforcement official, The Post has learned.

The newly re-elected president asked his controversial attorney general to stay for the second term, and Holder has agreed despite enduring a firestorm of criticism from Republican lawmakers.

“I don’t know if everyone in the White House wants him [Holder] to stay, but the important guy does, and that’s all that matters,” said one person briefed on the matter. 

Under President Obama, getting hundreds of Mexicans killed in addition to American federal agents, not only doesn't get you fired, but gets you a second gig. Holder staying isn't surprising because after all, Obama needs him to carry out a highly progressive agenda by manipulating the law under the guise of false "justice."
