Nicholson Out -- New Photos Take Top Priority at VA

Secretary of Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson has resigned.

He presided over a $1-billion budget shortfall, miscalculations in the number of wounded vets coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan and the bungled handling of a lost laptop computer containing personal information of millions of veterans and active duty Service members.

Here at Watching Washington, he'll be best remembered as the guy who put that whole "we don't have enough money to care for vets" issue behind him to make sure his picture given top priority at every VA office and hospital. (NYT)
