Do you think that Norton's resignation had anything to do with...
Bush's unpopularity?

Could this also be the proof that he is unpopular and this may very well be the first in a line of resignations?

This is just an opinion question BTW, I think that Bush's unpopularity is beginning to show.

Conservative

2. NO! It has to do with her connection with Jack Abramoff!
Gail was the go to person he had to influence and I'm sure lots of $$ got him what he wanted!

10. Walking?
Hell, she's running as fast as she can into the shower. Ms Norton wants to wash off all the slime.

5. Bingo--her number two is involved up to his ass, and the trail of
breadcrumbs through the forest of greed likely stops right at her door.

Run, run, run away!!!!!

9. She's Secretary of the Interior, so all things involving indian affairs
go through her Dept. The Indian groups were the prime clients of Jack's scam!

11. I absolutely believe this-when McCain had the Indian Tribe hearing
he set the tone IMMEDIATELY to excluse Norton... MCCain was protecting her and trying to set up that guy who worked for her as the fall person

3. She probably got caught with her fingers in the cookie jar.
Sticky fingers seems to be a congenital condition in this administration.

13. Has she stated yet that her resignation is due to a wish to spend
more time with her family? That seems to be the most popular reason for resigning from a post in this administration.
