RICE TO RESIGN AT END OF YEAR?….I’m with Josh Marshall. This is the first I’ve heard of this:

As she prepares to leave her job at the end of the year, Ms. Rice, the president’s national security adviser, now finds herself at the center of a political storm, furiously defending both the White House and her own reputation.

This seems like a peculiar way of announcing your resignation. It’s not like I blame her for wanting to get out, mind you, but I haven’t heard before this that she was definitely slated to leave.

Unless, of course, this just means she’s given up hope that Bush will win reelection….
