The people have spoken. He’s out. And President Bush has nominated former CIA chief Robert Gates to replace Donald Rumsfeld.
I haven’t seen much coverage of the editorial piece that was published Monday in the 250,000 copies of the Army Times, Navy Times, Marine Corps Times, and Air Force Times, asking for Donald Rumsfeld’s resignation.
I leave you with a photo of Rumsfeld from his Princeton days.
He’s always depicted as a pointing, furrowed brow curmudgeon so I thought I’d hunt down a flattering picture of him. Granted it’s a 50-year-old picture, but still. Politics does age you. I wonder if there is a spa for political resignees?
Any way, that’s my political wrapup for the week. My friend R*Belle just launched a great new blog (I believe it’s now a must for people to have more than one blog) called Moms on the Fly to help you keep up with current events.
