Turnover in the White House

Ashcroft, Evans, Powell, and three others have resigned.

Gonzales and Rice have been chosen as replacements already.

I won't try to spin this one as a massive mutiny. Maybe they've just had enough. That's the risk you take when hiring older, more experienced politicians -- their careers may be nearing an end.

My concern? The death penalty. Why on earth is a nation as advanced as ours still allowing state-sanctioned murders to teach us that murder is wrong? The last thing we need is yet another strong advocate for executions serving in the White House.
