Card Falls

Andy Card’s resigned, to be replaced by Josh Bolten. He may run for governor in Massachusetts, but would lose, like any other Republican, to either Tom Reilly or (if we’re lucky) Deval Patrick. I can’t say I think this is that big of a deal; Card’s fall has been in the, er, cards since the Harriet Miers pick, which he handled instead of Rove. That clearly showed Rove to be the superior political strategist, and Boy Genius will remain what he’s been all along: chief of staff in everything but name.
P.S. Todd Gitlin, everyone’s favorite SDSer, has some interesting dirt on Bolten.
