I think Charles McCord was the first to report on the AP news story. He said AP was calling it a White House Shake-up

A Josh (?) Bolton will replace Card. Karen was excellent. While changes are being made, I'd like to see Scott McClellan replaced as well.

Hughes is too logical a pick. I say, why not go for the jugular? Appoint Harriet Meyers!

I can see John Bolton dealing with the White House press corps. I'd pay money to see him bite Helen Thomas' head off.

Think of it this way. In the Bush administration Mr Card was able to resign.

In the Clinton administration he would have been rubbed out.

Is FNC inferring that stepping down is Card's idea, or was he asked to do so?
