Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said that he had no plans to leave the Cabinet, despite a Washington Post article that suggested the secretary had "one foot out the door."

"At this point in time, unless the president has different thoughts on this, I’m keeping the job I’ve got, because I’m not sure I can get another one," he said Thursday during a press conference on the latest Farm Bill program developments.

Vilsack, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, and Office of Management and Budget Director Shaun Donovan (who started as Housing and Urban Development Secretary) are the only remaining original Obama Administration cabinet members. Attorney General Eric Holder announced Thursday that he was resigning.
