All Tomorrow's Purges

The AP Reports:
President Bush's national security team, which has stayed remarkably intact despite missteps in Iraq and his slumping approval ratings, is likely to undergo a major facelift if Bush wins a second term. Maybe even before.
Though the article doesn't say it, I suspect that the neoconservatives might be the biggest losers if such a shake up. The rest of the Republican Party is very displeased with them because of the mess in Iraq. The fact that the US has turned on their golden boy Ahmed Chalabi shows that their influence is in decline. However, their absence from a possible future Bush Administration is not at all comforting. After all, Bush was the man who hired them in the first place.
