The Moose Weighs In
Marshall Wittman has a fabulous post on the Secretary of Defense. Here's a bit:
"Donald Rumsfeld has accomplished something no government official has achieved. Rummy has brought the country together. He is truly a uniter and not a divider.
Republican and Democrat. Conservative and Liberal. Civilian and Military. Red State and Blue State. All together.
America is agreed. We are a united nation.
There is a national consensus - Donald Rumsfeld must go.
... It appears that there are only two holdouts on this national consensus - Donald Rumsfeld and George W. Bush. It is a curious moment. The Administration is in a free fall and yet the President is refusing to take dramatic action. Is W. engaged in a perverse competition with Richard Nixon for which President can achieve the lowest popularity numbers?"
Needless to say, read the whole thing!
