Moving On ... (Updated)

CIA director David Petraeus has resigned, citing an extra-marital affair. (Update: the Daily Mail reports that the affair was with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, who is also married. Convenient timing--not disclosed until after the election, but just before Petraeus was scheduled to testify before Congress on Benghazi. Even the Daily Mail notes: "One of the most puzzling aspects of the resignation is its proximity to next week’s congressional hearings on Benghazi, which Petraeus has said he will not now attend, even though being out of office would not preclude his doing so.").

Hillary Clinton will be leaving her position as Secretary of State.

Eric Holder is thinking of leaving his position as Attorney General.

Between speaking engagements, positions on the boards of multinational corporations and NGO's, and other lucrative job opportunities, they should do very well for themselves. As for those of us in the 99% ... well, I don't think they care.
