I think this is good for former AG Holder. However, I'd rather see him spearhead his own organization.

I think he'd be great at it.

Me too. I get a good vibe from him. When he resigned, I got the feeling that his political position was holding him back from doing the good things that he wanted to do. And, I suspected we would see him again in a position that didn't restrict him. I think he will even do more than this stint with the Urban League. I was wishing he would've got appointed to the Supreme Court.

The Republicans would not have voted for him to be a U.S. Supreme Court Justice. He gave them the business as U.S. AG. He was no joke. haahahaaa

To the Republicans, he was the "uppity niggra" I'm sure. They weren't ever going to support his nomination to be a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.

You are so right. I am the consummate optimist. One day I'll learn. But, it would have been so cool.
