A member of President Obama’s cabinet says he still has many items on his “to do” list.¬†Eric¬†Holder spoke Thursday at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center. Holder believes the U.S. Supreme Court got it wrong last year when it gutted a key provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. He also says a former Secretary of Defense was off base with his criticisms of the President. Holder says onetime Pentagon chief Robert Gates should have waited until Obama had left the White House.
