Two U.S. Attorneys Appointed by G.W. Bush Won't Leave

Traditionally, U.S. Attorneys can't expect to remain in their positions when a new Administration takes office, but two current U.S. Attorneys don't want to leave. Why? They are busy they say:
U.S. Attorneys Mary Beth Buchanan of Pittsburgh and Alice Martin of Birmingham are resolved to stay in their posts. The Daily Beast has learned that both are arguing to the Obama transition team that their efforts to convict Democrats should guarantee them an extended stay into the Obama presidency.
That's right, they are busy prosecuting Democrats for corruption.

Do they really think that is a good reason for a Democratic administration to keep them on?
