Holder believes the U.S. Supreme Court got it wrong last year when it gutted a key provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. He also says a former Secretary of Defense was off base with his criticisms of the President. Holder says onetime Pentagon chief Robert Gates should have waited until Obama had left the White House.
