The AP just put out this one-line story:
WASHINGTON – White House legal counsel Harriet Miers has submitted her resignation.
Oh, my. Afraid of the new Democratic Congress, Harriet?
Looks like the Chimpster is down to Laura and Barney.
UPDATE: ‘Twas Josh Bolten who pushed Miers out of the door.
He said Miers, 61, a loyal adviser to the president for years, has been having conversations with White House chief of staff Joshua Bolten about leaving for some time and both agreed that it was time for a change at the White House office of legal counsel.
