Thoughts on calls for Donald Rumsfeld's resignation

When some retired generals state very publicly that they want Donald Rumsfeld gone, it reminds me of candidate John Kerry's very public statement listing the retired generals and admirals who supported him, when in fact ten times as many had declared themselves against him.

That said, I do not have a firm opinion on Donald Rumsfeld's job performance. My knowledge of the man comes primarily from Midge Decter's (none-too-neutral) hagiography as well as the (none-too-neutral) media headlines.
