From the DNC chairman:
I am glad that President Bush has finally listened to the growing chorus of retired Generals, civilian leaders and Democrats who long ago called for Secretary Rumsfeld’s resignation. This is a good first step but the American people have spoken and it must be followed by a real change in direction in Iraq and in America’s foreign policy by the President. Democrats are united and ready to get to work with Republicans to find real solutions to the challenges we are facing in Iraq. Our brave troops fighting in harm’s way deserve nothing less.
