White House Chief of Staff Andy Card Resigns

The AP is reporting that Andy Card, who has served as the White House Chief of Staff since President Bush's first inauguration, has tendered his resignation and that President Bush has accepted Card's request. Josh Bolten, Deputy Chief of Staff and former head of the Office of Management and Budget, will replace Card.

Card was one of the hardest working men in the White House, and the very nature of the job makes it grueling no matter how many hours you put in. His service of over five years makes his tenure one of the longest in history. I wish him well and recognize his service to this country.

The press will attempt to connect this move with President Bush's sagging poll numbers, and while that may have been motivation for the move, we truly will never know what the real motivations were behind Card's actions. He might have just had enough of the job. We'll really never know.
