43. My guess...
... is that Ashcroft stayed on long enough to see if this investigation would amount to much. He likely would not have recused himself if significant damage control would have been needed.

So Ashcroft knows there is no real evidence of anything pointing to any White House big shots and/or helped cover up anything that could have posed any danger to the Bush administration, then resigns knowing that when the investigation turns up little to nothing he can say he isn't stonewalling or limiting the investigation because he had recused himself.

Maybe a little tin foil hatish, which I am not known for, but that is my first guess.

I could be totally wrong though, but I expect absolutely nothing to come from this CIA Leak Investigation.
