Bush is re-elected and there are books to be written about how he is the devil. CNN reports that we have our first contender for the second administration in the vain of Paul O'Neill and Richard Clarke: Cofer Black.
President Bush's point man for international counterterrorism policy has quit, the first resignation by a senior official to be made public since Bush's reelection, a U.S. official said on Friday.The new professional opportunity is a Simon & Schuster book deal with a 60 minutes interview and a possible spot testifying at the planned Bush impeachment.
Cofer Black, the State Department's coordinator for counterterrorism for the last two years, told his bosses of his decision well before the election, which Bush won campaigning as a strong leader in the war on terror.
"He informed the State Department a few weeks ago that the transition period after the election would be the right time for him to explore new professional opportunities."
