"The objective of securing the safety of Americans from crime and terror has been achieved," Ashcroft wrote in a five-page, handwritten letter to Bush.

What was he drinking....? As Attorney General, such an arrogant statement is bewildering not to mention naive.

I wonder who has the task of writing Colin Powell's letter of resignation? Condi, Donald or Karl?

CBS reports on Ashcroft resignation

I think that after Powell was disgraced by the "evidence" he presented to the UN, he would not trust anyone at BushCo. and want to write his own letter.

I would have bet on Powell resigning and Ashcroft taking his place as Sec. of State.

(shudder) Why stop there, why not just have Rumsfeld become the new SecState

It is a shame about Powell though, he deserved better. As for Ashcroft, well, things can only go up from here....

Worry more about the replacements to the Supreme Court, in that Bush could choose judges who might serve for 20-30 years......or more!!

See, I'm not *as* worried about that, as two of the courts most conservative members (Reinquest and Scalia) are the ones closest to retirement. Bush can really only maintain the status quo (with the first 2 appointments), and who knows, maybe even get surprised like his father was...

Last minute dignity as it was widely reported last week of his impending dismissal.

KFHP, actually Rehnquist would be the first to retire, then I would envision Stevens (a liberal), Ginsburg (a liberal) and O'Connor (a swing vote conservative, depending upon the issue). Breyer, Ginzburg and Stevens are the only traditionally liberal justices on the Court. Thus, a loss of one or two of these liberal voices for moderation, rather than a strict interpretation of the Constitution, will swing the court to a more conservative bent. Bush Sr. appointed Souter, and he has proven to be a moderate. Bush Jr. shall NOT make this same "mistake" (in the eyes of many neocons). We shall see.
