|Interior Secretary Ken Salazar will soon leave his post, the White House has confirmed. Salazar will depart in March, according to an official at the Interior Department and a senior administration official. His exit means that Obama's cabinet, which has already come under some fire for lacking diversity in its recent nominees, will lose a little bit more diversity -- at least temporarily.
Another Latino cabinet member, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, resigned last week, and two other top women -- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Environmental Protection Agency head Lisa Jackson -- are both on their way out.
