Sorry, White House Chief of Staff resigned just now. Loyal Bush man, but in the face of bad approval ratings, the most expendable. Visible enough to shut the press up, obscure enough that the public won't know he just threw out an organizer and manager and not a policy guy.

President Bush today announced the resignation of his chief of staff, Andrew H. Card Jr., in the first major staffing change of his troubled second term.

Joshua Bolten, the budget director, will succeed Mr. Card.

Mr. Card will be replaced by Joshua Bolten, the budget director.

At a brief White House ceremony, Mr. Bush said that Mr. Card had approached him "and raised the possibility of stepping down."

"He thought it might be time to return to private life," Mr. Bush said, adding that he had decided last weekend to accept Mr. Card's resignation.

Mr. Bush has come under increasing pressure in recent months from members of his own party to shake up his staff as a way of turning around his decline in popularity.

Many Republicans felt that even without Mr. Bush's mounting problems some new faces were needed. Mr. Card was approaching the record of the longest serving White House chief of staff, with a tenure rivaling that of Sherman Adams, the chief of staff to President Eisenhower.

He had a long run. Administrations typically have 2-3 COS's over the course of a 2 term presidency. Card's been there since the beginning.

+1

From what I've gathered this morning, Card's also been rumored to have been leaving for a couple years now. This is evidently not really news to those on the inside.

Yep. This will just be shuffle to give the press something to talk about other than Iraq.


ETA: I really expected Cheney to move out and give Condi (or someone else) the VP slot. They need an heir to the throne.
