WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says he plans to have a "serious conversation" with Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki about whether he can stay in his job.<br />
Obama says he will ask Shinseki whether he is "prepared and has the capacity" to fix sweeping problems in the VA's nationwide health care system. The president says he doesn't want any veteran to not be getting the kind of services they deserve.<br />
Shinseki is to address a homeless veterans group on Friday. He's facing increasing calls for his resignation from lawmakers in both parties.<br />
Obama's comments came in an interview airing Friday on the television talk show "Live! With Kelly and Michael." A clip from the interview was aired Friday on ABC's Good Morning America.<br />
A blustery winter storm dumped snow and ice across the West on Wednesday, making driving treacherous in the mountains from California to the Rockies and forcing residents and party-goers in some usually sun-soaked cities to bundle up for a frosty New Year's.
Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president, released Wednesday a list of 11 potential Supreme Court justices he plans to vet to fill the seat of late Justice Antonin Scalia if he's elected to the White House.
