White House’s short list of Cabinet fixtures; a big donor of modest means; and defending ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ (read-this roundup)


Labor Secretary Hilda Solis is leaving, but what about the rest of the Cabinet? (Richard Vogel - AP)
Here’s what the Loop is reading today:

Makin’ a list, checking it twice — There are only three names on the list of Cabinet secretaries who are definitely staying on, according to information the White House offered up Wednesday. “White House aides said that [Attorney General Eric] Holder, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric K. Shinseki would remain in their posts.”

OK, but what about everyone else. . ..?

Modest means? — Something smells fishy about a woman who lives in a $50K house donating a million bucks to a GOP super PAC. . ..

Lighten up — MPAA president Chris Dodd’s defense of the controversial flick “Zero Dark Thirty,” which is getting heat from Washington wonk/critics: “It’s a movie!”
