Andy Card, the presidents chief of staff resigned today. This comes as little surprise to me or to most of the poli-dorks out there. In all fairness to Mr. Card, the White House Chief of Staff job is probably even more difficult than even the president's. Mr. Card was the second longest serving Chief of Staff in modern history. Even though I disagree with Mr. Card and his policies I will give him credit for sticking around as long as he did. It is unclear if Card is stepping down under pressure from top republicans or from his own fatigue (or some combination of the two).
He will be replaced by Josh Bolton.
I am doubtful that this will lead to any great re-thinking of the Bush administration policy agenda since Mr. Bolton is an inside man, but you never know.
