The two people who I think we should be most concerned is
the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and Chairman of the
Federal Reserve. These two positions wield a huge amount
of influence over our nation. I think next on the list is who
is going to be the National Intelligence Director. I just hope
it is not someone like Ashcroft or we are more doomed.
The Washington Beltway rumors is that Ridge is unhappy as he
doesn't seem to have that much power. Being the front man
who has to go on TV and tell everyone to change their safety
level from Blue to Yellow isn't feeling the love.
Dr. Rice and John Snow does a fine job. Though I always
thought Dr. Rice would have been more effective as
Sec. of Education. Im sure she knows how to bend the
Presidents ear when she needs it.
Your right about the anchors, Powell, Rumsfeld and Chaney
run the show, everyone else follows. Rove gives the thumbs up
and the President puts the big W at the bottom of the executive
I think more eyes are all on the Supreme Court as to who is
going to be replaced. Names are already floating around
Washington. I am sure W likes Theodore Olson but he is
about as old as the judges on the bench.
