DC Intern Diaries

I'm a female 24 year old DC permanent intern. You name it and I've probably interned it. I'm also a graduate student in DC.

Even Bush's own people want to get out of the administration

Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson resigned today. Which makes how many people willing to stay under a Bush presidency? Not many.

The Bush administration has seen the resignations of Attorney General John Ashcroft, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, Commerce Secretary Don Evans, Education Secretary Rod Paige, Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman and Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham. And John Danforth, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, announced he will leave his post in January after less than seven months on the job.

Is it the awful six figure salary? Is it the constant explaining to Bush difficult concepts in fourth grade terms? Is it the get out now before your legacy goes to hell feeling?

Now if only the American people could leave the Bush administration too.
