Various people are hearing that we’re going to have a resignation this afternoon in President Bush’s Cabinet. We reported over the weekend that Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff had been considered the prime candidate to step aside. The other name to consider is Treasury Secretary Snow. He’s been under a great deal of pressure lately to be more vocal. The Snow exit makes another rumor we’ve been hearing a bit more plausible, which is that current White House chief of staff Andy Card has been looking for “new challenges” at the same time that the President has been considering a new chief of staff. A Snow out, Card moving in to Treasury, would allow the President to put in place a war time consigliere type at chief of staff, to get a very wobbly White House staff in place.
