FNC has picked it up, quoting AP. Now the question is, who's the next SecDef going to be?

I am sure that Rummy is insisting this time. The President is a loyal man, but Rummy is going to do what he thinks is best.

I disagree. If Rumsfeld resigns, it will rob the Democrats of a punching bag.

If Rumsfeld resigns, why did Bush say JUST LAST WEEK that he and Cheney were staying on?

Raise the white flag....yea, that'll fix Iraq. Damn CUT & RUN REPUBLICANS to hell.

The President doesn't have to accept the resignation, but he will.

I hope GW appoints an even more hawkish SOD.

The Demonrats are going to get what they asked for. Trouble is, we get it, too.

I agree.

It is a necessary action as the GOP regroups.

This move ends the future endless hearings that Rumsfield would have had to attend to rather than his job. He has no choice.

Reactionary Stupidity

Rumsfeld should have resigned last week if this was the plan all along.
