My favourite member of the Bush administration will leave

Report: Powell would not serve second term

Quote:
from CNN

Monday, August 4, 2003 Posted: 3:25 AM EDT (0725 GMT)

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Secretary of State Colin Powell and his top deputy have told the White House they will not serve a second term if President Bush is re-elected, The Washington Post reported.

Citing "sources familiar with the conversation," the paper said in a story for Monday's editions that Powell deputy Richard L. Armitage recently told national security adviser Condoleezza Rice that he and Powell will leave on Jan. 21, 2005, the day after the next presidential inauguration.

The Post said Powell has indicated to associates that a promise to his wife, rather than any policy disagreements with others in the administration, is a key factor in his intention to serve only one term. ...
So if Mr. Bush gets reelected Mr. Powell won't be part of the government anymore

"A promise to his wife." That's what they all say.

Guess it's good or bad news depending on what he does now. I like him, I think he's lightyears ahead of the rest of the gang. It would be a shame if he just goes off and 'retires'.

They speculate about Condoleezza Rice or Paul Wolfowitz as future Foreign minister - i must admit that i disslike that idea, i don't think that this would be helpful for the US/European relationship

Take a deep breath - it is all a rumor.

From CNN: Secretary of state dismisses newspaper report as 'nonsense'

You can all happily vote for GW and see Powell back in action
