As this article notes, I have had my own run ins with Berry. Anyway, I think that Mona Charen captures many people's reaction to Berry finally leaving: "Berry ruled the Civil Rights Commission like a dictator, bullying her allies and undermining her foes through means fair and foul. When President Bush appointed Kirsanow, Berry refused to seat him until a court ordered her to do so. She stood for the principle that no fact should stand in the way of her moral posturing. She got away with it for way too long."
