Last week, Al Gore near-tearfully asked for his resignation. I can picture it all now. The Tenet press conference with Howard Dean’s group and MoveOn were he announces that Bush is a failed leader. The October surprise book where he blames everything wrong with intel on W., Condi & the Pentagon.
In truth, I really can’t imagine he could (except if he was asked to leave, which is very possible–probably likely?–though it is very belated). President Bush has been ridiculously (and ill-advisedly) loyal to him. But, if he did, it probably couldn’t hurt the Anybody But Bush Kerry campaign, even if it comes from arguably (is it though?) Bush’s worst Cabinet member.
