If Rumsfeld resigns what happens to the other neocons in the defense dept?
So what happens to Wolfowitz and the other neocon chickenhaws at the defense department? Do they leave with him, or do they stay?

2. * won't let him resign
or be fired. He's afraid he'll write a book.

4. Business as usual
They know they need to do a blood letting to save their administration, and they have determined that Rummy is the most expendible -- he's old, he's white, he's a man, and a Washington Guy. And he is also not an integral part of the PNAC plan -- he's only been part of its implementation, which he has performed, but with some reluctance.

He's also been the most public face of the war. But I think time will show that Rummy has more in common with Colin Powell than he does with Wolfowitz, and that there are people infintely more culpable than he -- like Cheney, Rice, and Wolfowitz, for starters.

Forcing Rummy to resign is mere window dressing. They had to pick a guy who was not fundamental to the PNAC plan -- and Rummy is not. He's also not black, and not a woman -- because His Chimperial Majesty needs his tokens -- not matter how pitifully incompetent they are (Rice) to show that he is not the southern sexist racist pig that he is.

Look -- if they lose the PNAC plan -- they have NO JUSTIFICATION for being in Iraq. None. As soon as *that* little bit of reality is exposed -- it's impeachment time. They have to protect that with all they've got.

They're hoping that the controversial Rumsfeld will be a sufficient offering.

But we all know that he is just a small part of the problem.

There is no cancer on this presidency. It is instead wholly malignant, and been so from Day 1.

All we are saying is give impeachment a chance.
