STACKED DECK:

Card to Remain White House Chief of Staff (AP, 11/08/04)

The White House has been mum on personnel and Cabinet changes expected in President Bush's second term, but a man at the center of the anticipated shuffle is staying.

The president asked Andrew Card to remain as White House chief of staff, the president's spokesman Scott McClellan said Monday.

"Andy Card was honored to accept," McClellan said of the 57-year-old Holbrook, Mass., native who is married to the Rev. Kathleene Card and has three children. "He serves at the pleasure of the president just like the rest of us."


You need him for the transition but he has to burn out eventually. Plus, he has political ambitions of his own back in MA.

For Republicans in Massachusetts, only the governorship is both attractive and attainable, and that's already occupied. No reason for Card to leave the White House now.
