Whether you like or loathe U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, you have to admit that he is fearless in voicing and executing his convictions from his position as the nation's top cop.

I think you can include the first term as well. Right out of the gate Holder was pressing to try Gitmo detainees in New York City rather than deal with them offshore- much to the chagrin of Republicans, New Yorkers, the families of 9/11 victims and those who thought we were in a War on Terror.
