Offer accepted....with conditions
This morning I wrote:
Tell you what: bring us the head of Donald Rumsfeld as an offering, and we'll talk...Okay, then:
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, architect of an unpopular war in Iraq, intends to resign after six stormy years at the Pentagon, Republican officials said Wednesday.Now I want...a shrubbery. One that looks nice. And not too expensive.
Officials said Robert Gates, former head of the CIA under the first President Bush, would replace Rumsfeld. NBC News’ Tim Russert confirmed Rumsfeld’s resignation and the replacement pick.
Barring that, George Bush could step down.
