    Who would Bush replace Rumsfeld with? He replaced Powell with Condi; he replace Ashcroft with Gonzales; he appointed Bolton to the UN. His replacements are invariably worse than the one replaced. I can't for the life of me imagine who would be worse than Rumsfeld, but I'm sure Bush could rise (or sink) the occasion.

    •  COHEN. (0+ / 0-)

      That's who he would replace him with.

      keep punching away at him anyway. He'll never resign, as he and Cheney are the real masters, Bush just their front man.

      But keeping up the pressure on Rumsfeld forces Bush to defend the indefensible, and every time he defends him he shows again he was never in earnest about fighting an effective war against terrorism.

      Rummy has become the albatross around Bush's neck, and I hope the albatross continues to hang there for the next two years.
