Bush without Card (Robert Novak, Nov 19, 2005, Townhall)

The absence by Chief of Staff Andrew Card from President Bush's Latin America and Asia trips has increased speculation about a possible reconstruction of the White House staff. [...]

Al Hubbard, director of the National Economic Council, is being given a wide variety of domestic assignments beyond economics and is speculated on as Card's possible successor.

Mr. Card can bow out gracefully by returning home to run for governor.

Not sure if Romney will run or not. A recent poll had Romney ahead of O'Reilly (the probable Dem candidate) for the first time in a long while. Not sure how Card would do as a GOP candidate vs. O'Reilly. But some new blood in the WH might be good to get Bush moving forward again.

Lord knows that Massachusetts needs a real Republican.

Romney's running for Pres and can't afford to lose the governorship.
