  •  I agree he is just pooped (0+ / 0-)

    and wouldn't anyone be if they had get up at 4:30 AM every day to shovel out the Augean stables.  Card is the ultimate apparatchik. No doubt he was aware of much of what was going on -- an expediter of policy others set. But I don't think he has an evil soul even though the stench has rubbed off on him, much like Scotty McC.

      Andy Card is probably the best White House Chief of Staff a Democrat can hope for.  Didn't Card, after all, support, of all things, the Clinton health care reform plan?

      That said, I think Pres. Bush could do better than having Josh Bolten as WH Chief of Staff.  I think having someone like fmr. Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker (although he's probably a bit too old, and doesn't want the job), fmr. Senate Majority Whip Alan Simpson (same problem as Baker), etc. would be a much better pick than Bolten.

      •  What's wrong with Bolten? (0+ / 0-)

        And hiring retired Senate leaders for Chief of Staff?  Never heard of a move like that.

        Bush would never hire someone competent over someone he knows is a loyalist anyway.
