Exit Rumsfeld

W. just gave him the boot.

Rummy's replacement: Bob Gates, currently the president of Texas A&M and a former CIA head under both George the Elder and Bill Clinton. What's more, Gates was an assistant and depty. nat'l. security advisor to George H.W. Bush, and is currently a member of the Baker-Hamilton Commission.

At first blush, this certainly seems to hint that 43 is ready to listen to 41 a whole lot more than he has been. Time will tell.
