Ashcroft Expected to Resign

Sources: Ashcroft Expected to Resign "President Bush is laying the groundwork on how to achieve his second-term agenda Thursday, first by meeting with his Cabinet, then by holding a news conference where he is expected to outline plans for his next four years in office...

'I made it clear to them [the Cabinet] I was glad the election was over and reminded them that we're here for a reason,' Bush said at the meeting, his first with the Cabinet since Aug. 2. 'They understand that it's such an honor to serve America, it's a privileged to sit around this table … and do the nation's business.'"

It is an honor to serve this country. Too bad the president couldn't be bothered to serve the country between August 2nd and now. That is over three months without a cabinet meeting.

But on the plus side, various news outlets, including CNN, are reporting that Ashcroft is expected to turn in his resignation in the next couple of weeks. There is speculation he is resigning for health reasons. I don't wish ill health on him, but I do wish for a more moderate Department of Justice.

This is where I prove I'm a guy: will Ascroft's successor unveil the statue that he had had draped? And if so, what should we Read Into This? (g)
