That didn’t take long. Less than a day after the Democrats shifted the balance of power and Donald Rumsfeld is quitting:
WASHINGTON (AP)—Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, architect of an unpopular war in Iraq, intends to resign after six stormy years at the Pentagon, Republican officials said Wednesday.
Officials said Robert Gates, former head of the CIA, would replace Rumsfeld.
Good riddance to bad rubbish.
