Ken Salazar Says He's Not Leaving Interior Any Time Soon

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says he's not leaving his post any time soon.

Salazar was not present at President Barack Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday, serving as the administration's "designated survivor" in the event of an attack or an accident at the Capitol. But at a speech Wednesday to his department's employees, he warned viewers not to read too much into his absence.
