1. There's no controversy too non-existent that the media will not drum up


for ratings and titillation. I was scratching my head at this the whole time.

2. Regarding President Obama's second term cabinet


Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Secretary Janet Napolitano are still in Obama's cabinet and they are not going anywhere.
Secretary of Commerce, Rebecca Blank, is female - and has not resigned as far as I know.
Attorney General Eric Holder is African-American - and will be staying on for the second term.
Secretary Shinseki and Secretary Chu are Asian.
There is probably another one I missed to include above.
President Obama's cabinet in his second term WILL BE diverse just like his first term.
Also, there are a few more cabinet slots that have not yet been announced, so there will most likely be more female appointments.
