    Sources: Colin Powell resigns

    Monday, November 15, 2004 Posted: 10:04 AM EST (1504 GMT)

    Secretary of State Colin Powell plans to stay on until his replacement is confirmed, officials say.

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell has submitted his resignation to President Bush, a senior administration official told CNN.

    Powell told his senior staff that he planned to stay on until a replacement was confirmed, State Department officials said.

    State Department officials told CNN that Bush and Powell decided mutually that it was time for him to go.

    Rumors have swirled about Powell's role in a second Bush administration, but neither the president nor the secretary had spoken publicly about his future.

    Last week, when asked if he wanted Powell to stay on to oversee the Mideast peace process Bush told reporters: "I'm proud of my secretary of state. He's done a heck of a good job."

    Powell told reporters that he had had several conversations with the president, but would not comment on what they said.
  6. Man, bush is so slick..he could be saying the exact same shit for the guy that's milking his cows down on the W ranch....

    There are a bunch of names being floated around - no one's sure who will take the position. But, yes, Rice is one that the media considers a possibility.

    I'm saddened to see the only true moderate [when it comes to issues of war and peace] essentially forced out of his position after being relegated to zero power and influence over decisions in Iraq. Can anyone explain why the fuck Rumsfeld still has his job? Zero accountability.

    I guess he had enough of being the scapegoat.

    Something about 'rats fleeing the sinking ship' comes to mind.

    this sucks. bush is seriously slick, all this shit AFTER the election, CIA, Ashcroft, Powell, Fallujah, etc. Amazing the timing this guy has, if a quarter of this shit came out he would have been out on his ass. Sick. :yuck: my girl asked me yesterday if i would think about going to church, yeah right i says, but more i think about it, it's looking like a good plan.

    Going to a moderate church based on community instead
    of religious guilt appeals to me. After all.... it should be about
    the people and the comunity that you are with.

In addition to Powell, sources said the White House today also will announce the resignations of Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham, Education Secretary Rod Paige and Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman."
