Tom Ridge quits

Ridge submitted his resignation in writing to President Bush this morning. In an e-mail circulated to Homeland Security officials, Ridge praised the department as "an extraordinary organization that each day contributes to keeping America safe and free." He also said he was privileged to work with the department's 180,000 employees "who go to work every day dedicated to making our country better and more secure."

Apparently those 180,000 employees have been doing a better job than Bush: a terrorist attack inside the United States has never happened on Ridge's watch.

Or should we say "not yet" happened...Ridge plans to stick around until a successor is named—probably after Bush's inauguration on January 20 (which promises to be well attended by terrorists—er, demonstrators).
