Well it only took several years, numerous calls from from just about everybody outside of the White House, and a Democratic landslide in the mid-terms.
CNN is reporting that embattled Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is “quitting”.
“Don Rumsfeld has been a superb leader during a time of change,” Bush said Wednesday. “Yet he also appreciates the value of bringing in a fresh perspective during a critical period in this war.”
Geez, like no one has said that a fresh perspective is needed over at the DOD lately… Maybe the GOP could have done a little better yesterday if Rummy had done this a bit sooner as he has been a lightning rod for the problems in Iraq for months. Does anyone else think that the Bush White House should work a bit on their timing?
