WHY? He’s weak and an Obama toddie asskisser.
When I look at Les Aspin’s actions in the aftermath of the Battle of Mogadishu (i.e. resignation) and compare it to the action of Gates after the Ft. Hood massacre (i.e. denial), I have to say I have far more respect for the former.
You may not like Gates, but he’s better than any replacement that Obama would name. This is good news.
