Amid growing Veterans Affairs scandal, why Eric Shinseki is hard to fire | WashingtonExaminer.com

By that time, Shinseki had become a legend to anti-war liberals, and all the more so by December 2008, when President-Elect Obama was choosing his cabinet. "By tapping Mr. Shinseki to run the VA, [Obama] has provided a sop to the left," wrote the lefty blogger Steve Kornacki, now an MSNBC personality, when Shinseki's appointment was announced.
