Tonight on Countdown

White House chief of staff Andrew Card has resigned and will be replaced by budget director Joshua Bolten, President Bush announced Tuesday amid growing calls for a White House shake-up and Republican concern about Bush's tumbling poll ratings. Bush announced the changes in an nationally broadcast appearance in the Oval Office. Card came to Bush recently and suggested that he should step down from the job that he has held from the first day of Bush's presidency. Card's last day on the job will be April 14. Bush said he decided last weekend to accept Card's resignation. Bolten is widely experienced in Washington, both on Capitol Hill as well as at the White House, where he was deputy chief of staff before becoming director of the Office of Management and Budget. /

Countdown w/ Keith Olbermann broadcasts LIVE at 8 pm et, and the count is never complete without you. Join us.

We will air two large (and cocluding) segments of the Michael Schiavo interview today.

Drake University student Skyler Bartels spent part of his spring break living undercover at a Wal-Mart Supercenter in Windsor Heights. Bartels didn't last the entire week, but he did manage to stick it out for 41 consecutive hours. Shoppers and employees didn't pay much attention to him, he said, until the end of his stay. Bartels also said he is scheduled to appear tonight on "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" on MSNBC. National Public Radio, Bartels added, has penciled in this afternoon for a spot on "All Things Considered," and a radio station from Ireland wants to arrange an interview. Bartels got the idea during a talk with his adviser, Carol Spaulding-Kruse, an associate professor of English. After seeing the discount chain's ads, Bartels wondered whether a person could actually live at a Wal-Mart store.

That's some of what we're planning for tonight's show.
