Now I know how General Robert E. Lee felt in 1864 when informed of the death of his calvary leader, Gen. Jeb Stuart. Lee responded that he had “lost the eyes of the army.” (The previous year, when informed of the death of Stonewall Jackson, Lee said that he had lost his right arm.)
Well, that’s how I feel this morning hearing about the resignation of White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card.
I have lost my best source on the inner workings of the Bush administration.
It is going to be much more difficult for me now to reveal to readers what exactly Bush is thinking, and what the Big Picture is for the administration’s long-term strategy.
I guess I will just have to work harder on getting Dick Cheney to open up to me and give me the inside scoop.
