Help by signing a petition:
If people like John McCain and Chuck Hagel (who've both expressed no confidence in Rumsfeld as Sec. of Def.) can't get Rumsfeld out of there, I don't know what on earth a petition started by John Kerry would do. Incase you haven't noticed, not having the will of the people at their back has never stopped the Bush administration before.
Is Rumsfeld supposed to stay for the whole second term ?
These petitions won't work, just shoot him.
He's not "supposed" to do anything in a constitutional sense. He can resign if he wants to, and he will resign if Bush wants him to, but there is no reason he can't/wouldn't want to stay for the whole second term unless there's a huge scandal involving him.
But considering all the crap he's already done, he'd pretty much have to be caught electrocuting someone's genetalia while jacking off to be forced to resign.
What good would that do? What if someone like Wolfowitz was appointed to replace Rumsfeld? Killing Rumsfeld wouldn't mean you get a Sec. of Def. that's any better than him, just one with a different name.
Him and whole White House administration for treason !
