I sit here quite jealous of the fresh breezes blowing at the other Executive Branch agencies. Our last “all hands” meeting was last Friday, at which former Commerce Secretary Don Evans told us in a repetitive, rambling, semi-coherent speech that George Bush was misunderstood, and an extraordinary man willing to do unpopular things that history would judge as right. That was followed by a significantly more eloquent retiring Secretary Gutierrez who told us what a privilege it had been to serve under a “giant” like Bush.
So, while others are feeling the love, we wait in limbo…
