Rumsfeld-Gates

Whoa. Good-bye Rummy. I didn't see it coming. Bush has dropped liabilities before, see Brown and Miers. But he's kept with Rumsfeld so long I just didn't expect it. If they were going to throw him overboard, it would have made more sense to do it months ago. I think the key difference is the appearance of weakness. Miers and Brown weren't ditched anywhere near elections. I was wondering a bit after the "Fantastic job" comment. It was a bit too close to "heck of a job." But if you'd asked me, I'd have said no, he's staying.

This opens up many more possibilities.
