Just an FYI.
Via WHD’s Keith Koffler:
The White House is apparently letting its Binders Full of Women gather dust as it searches for candidates to full President Obama’s top jobs.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney today paid lip service to the notion of diversity in the highest echelons of Obamadom, and then scoffed that the president would simply choose the best people for the job.
[Carney] “The President values diversity, believes it’s important because it enhances the quality of the pool of potential nominees for positions across the administration. He believes that by looking broadly for candidates for offices that he ups the chances that he’ll find the very best person for the job . . . And he thinks that diversity enhances the process itself, the policy process, because it sort of increases the likelihood of a broader discussion potentially.
But the goal in the end is to find the very best individuals for these specific positions.”
