WHO WILL REPLACE PAUL O'NEILL? Ben Domenech has some candidates in mind:
Pros: As O'Neill's de facto deputy, he already knows the ins and outs of the job. Plus "generosity," "debt relief," and "worldwide economic recovery" just sound better when they're said by a man with an Irish lilt and ridiculous sunglasses.
Cons: Would immediately be rumored by Lloyd Grove to be tussling behind the scenes with Rumsfeld over who is "coolest Cabinet Secretary ever."
Actually, there's no contest. Meanwhile Tony Adragna has multiple takes on the O'Neill / Lindsey resignations. Oh, and there's also more at &c.
