Others expected to leave include Attorney General Eric Holder. Reports say he'll stay several more months, then leave. Possible replacements include Homeland Security Secretary (DHS) Janet Napolitano. Senate Democrats Amy Klobuchar (D. MN) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D. RI) are also mentioned. 

A new Commerce Secretary will be chosen. The post stayed unfilled after John Bryson resigned last June.

He was involved in two car crashes. He was investigated for possible felony hit and run. In July, Los Angeles prosecutors announced no criminal charges would be filed. It pays to be well connected. Rebecca Blank served as Acting Commerce Secretary in his place.
