It buggers up his very taxing schedule, pushing peace and understanding

Colin Powell's out. I'm not terribly upset by that. I appreciate the need for a diplomatic Good Cop-Bad Cop routine, but Powell frequently crossed the line into Overly Accommodating and Policy-Undermining Cop, which sent all sorts of mixed messages. Hopefully his replacement will have the willpower to ignore some of the more appeasement-minded impulses coming out of the State Department. Condi Rice would be great, but I'm still hoping she's being saved for possible Veepage should Dick Cheney's health decline further.
