Defense Secretary Robert Gates, the highest profile Republican in the Obama administration, plans to remain in his post for at least another year, the Pentagon said today. This is news because when Gates agreed to remain Defense Secretary for President Obama, it was assumed that it would only last a year. But even though Gates will be around for another year, he still looks froward "to one day retiring to his family home in the Pacific Northwest." How cute. [AP]
