Johnson Retires: Let The Exodus From USDE Begin

As happened during the last two years of the second Clinton administration, USDE officials are already leaving the Spellings camp.

Today, it's Henry Johnson, Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education.

According to the Department, Dr. Johnson will "retire to North Carolina to do consulting work with state and local education agencies."

Can someone "retire" from the USDE without really having started? Dr. Johnson was nominated in June 2005. He returned to Mississippi to help them through Katrina. When you figure what it takes to move people in and out of Washington offices, he couldn't have spent more than a year in his actual desk. Shouldn't they use the word "leave" instead?
