Rummy's Out; Lieberman's In

At least, that's the buzz. To quote Don Newman, "Holy Mackrel!"

"Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld hosted Sen. Joe Lieberman for a breakfast meeting Thursday amid speculation that the Connecticut Democrat could be in line to succeed him."

What this could mean is that Bush is finally realizing that his Iraq policy has been a spectacular failure. Most people figured this out months, if not years, ago of course. If this is true, Bush would essentially be admitting some form of wrong-doing - a momentous occassion indeed for a man who absolutely refuses to apologize for anything, and seems to pathologically believe that whatever he does is right, no matter what it is or how fatally - in this case literally - mismanaged it is.

Rummy should have gone ages ago. Bush should have gone in 2004 for not sacking him to begin with. Let's hope this is true; only new blood could possibly fix the mess that is Iraq.

Bush? hire a democrat? and admit he's wrong?

If you believe that I got this bridge in New York I'll let you have for a song.

seriously tho, if true (And I'd have to see it to believe it) I'd bet the farm it wouldn't be of his own doing. Probably a bunch of senators and congressment up for re-election in the upcoming midterms are trying to save their asses and pressured him.
