Rumsfeld cuts and runs.
Democrats have their first scalp on the day after the election: Donald Rumsefeld is stepping down from his position as Secretary of Defense. I wrote two years ago and again in April that Donald Rumsfeld wasn’t going anywhere because the Bush administration stood to lose much more than they’d gain from cutting him loose. Clearly that’s no longer so. The newly bipartisan President Bush is appointing…former CIA chief Robert Gates. Well, Bush has obviously learned nothing from having his ass handed to him yesterday.
