White House Press Secretary Tony Snow plans to resign, as will several other “high level” staffers. No exit dates were announced, but Karl Rove said he resigned Monday because “Josh Bolton told senior aides that if they stayed past Labor Day they would be obliged to remain through the end of the president's term in January 2009.”
If Karl Rove is to be believed (no irony in that statement), then these resignations should be coming in the next two weeks.
Frankly, I’m glad to see Tony Snow go. It’s become increasingly painful to watch him physically deteriorate from the podium in the White House Press Room.
