What do you think of Donald Rumsfeld stepping down?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on November 9, 2006
“I’m not surprised. It was inevitable. I just think it happened now because the Republicans took a well-deserved beating.”
“I think a clean slate is a good slate as far as a plan of action for the war is concerned.”
“I think it’s about time. Clearly his policies haven’t worked. The situation in Iraq is a disaster, and there is no way the president could function in the last two years of his term with Rumsfeld as secretary of defense.”
“He certainly hasn’t been a popular secretary of defense, but I really don’t know if it will be a good thing or a bad thing. There is always somebody worse.”
