Four More Cabinet Resignations

Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman, Education Secretary Rod Paige and Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham have all submitted resignations from their posts, but the big one is Colin Powell. Story here.

I'd hoped he would stay on -- although I disagree with him on many issues, I think he often played an important role in the Bush adminitration as the principled dissenter. Or maybe my opinion is colored by the media's portrayal of the Cabinet -- I must admit, I haven't really studied Powell's role in the Cabinet, but I'm mainly working off of what I've read while investigating other issues.
