Now It Powell's Turn To Leave
After bravely giving the indication last week that he may be around awhile, Colin Powell is resigning also, and will stay on until a successor is in place. And he's not alone in a second term exodus:
U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell has submitted his resignation to President Bush, the White House said on Monday.
Powell is the most prominent of four Cabinet officials whose resignations will be announced Monday, sources told CNN.
The others will be Agriculture Secretary Anne Veneman, Education Secretary Rod Paige and Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham, the sources said.
Powell told his senior staff that he planned to stay on until a replacement was confirmed, State Department officials said.
We can spend some time talking about a man who lost his honor on the trip to being a good soldier and kissing Bush's ass.
