A high profile resignation. This is what happens when you believe you have a mandate and allow yourself to be surrounded by extremists. Eventually, the true character of a person is exposed, and it is so outside the mainstream, the person has to leave.
Van Jones was never a good pick for a profile position in the White House. His resignation is the first of what will certainly be more than a dozen profile resignations before the 2010 elections. How do I know? I don’t, but I’m pretty certain that it’s just a matter of time before we start to learn about the history of many, many Obama appointees. It’s obvious that the internal vetting process is a disaster, so there will be many more “adjustments” to come.
