It's not just Colin Powell who's taking a powder from the second Bush administration. The Wash Post is reporting that such figurative and literal heavyweights as Rod "Education" Paige, Ann "Agriculture" Veneman, and Spencer "Energy" Abraham are joing the mass exodus of B-list celebrites leaving for Canada, Ireland, and other non-medieval countries.
Or maybe it just means that cabinet secretaries are being held to the same time limits as other welfare recipients.
Whole Post bit here.
If Bush wants to make a bold play for history, he should consider not filling the Education, Agriculture, and Energy slots. Or he could pull a page from John Kerry (remember him?) and "meld" the Ag and Labor departments like Kirk and Spock in countless episodes of slash fiction.
