Andrew Card resigned this morning as President Bush’s Chief of Staff. It’s inherently a thankless position; when is the last time a Chief of Staff was popular among a party’s activists? The Chief of Staff often gets blamed when things go poorly, but, conversely, rarely receives credit when things go well. I doubt that the change will make any difference, except maybe cosmetically, but it may satisfy some of those who have been demanding “change” in the administration.
UPDATE: Budget Director Josh Bolten will replace Card.
