Is anyone's head spinning from today’s news on VA Secretary Eric Shinseki’s resignation and the upcoming departure of White House press secretary Jay Carney? For official Washington and the reporters who cover government and politics, this is known as what happens on Fridays. While news occurs 24/7, there is something about a Friday that brings out bigger headlines and typically not good news for President Obama or any other White House occupant. Take, for example, the events of Feb. 1, 2013 when CIA director David Patreus stepped down and Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan said he’d retire.
