Besides, I don't believe Saresh was still on Taris at the time that it failed(presumably being reassigned to a new post). If anything Taris would appear to be a testament to her capabilities since the only time any progress was made was under her leadership and it fell apart the moment she left.
Otoh, the Rakghoul outbreak happened after Saresh became Chancellor, and surely someone in the galaxy realizes that colonizing the planet of the rabid zombies wasn't the brightest idea. That could bring Saresh's popularity down, not that the Republic's a democracy. Or may that's just wishful thinking on my part, since I'm still angry that not one of my characters was able to point out that both sides should be quarantining Taris, not shipping people on and off it without even making a pretense at keeping the incredibly dangerous epidemic from spreading.
