2. These people always resign several years too late.
They stick around just long enough to fuck everything up and then they want to "spend more time with the family".

Norton expected to resign as Interior secretary
By M.E. SPRENGELMEYER
Scripps Howard News Service
March 10, 2006

WASHINGTON - Interior Secretary Gale Norton was expected to announce Friday that she is resigning from President Bush's Cabinet, ending a five-year run that included frequent clashes with environmentalists and American Indian tribes.

<snip>
During her confirmation fight in early 2001, critics derided her as "James Watt in a skirt" - referring to the controversial Reagan Interior secretary who once worked with Norton at the Mountain States Legal Foundation.
