Rumsfeld out?

I've heard (and read) some rumors to the effect that Rumsfeld will resign early next year, perhaps to be replaced by Joe Lieberman. No cite as it's just rumors....

Frankly, I don't see the Lieberman angle, unless he's decided not to run for Senate again when his term expires.

I heard this too, but thought it was just a joke implying that Liberman was so aligned with the Bush Admin on the war he should just take over as Sec. of Defense...

Interesting to see if there's more to it than this.

Well, Lieberman is gaining a reputation much like Zell Miller used to have. He might be a good choice, but I don't know what military experience he has.

Frankly, I think it's a mistake to dro p Rumsfeld - it suggests nothing much more than capitulation to the jackasses.
