Will the Last Person in the Bush Cabinet Please Turn Off the Lights?

Tom Ridge's resignation this week brings to seven the number of Cabinet members leaving the Bush Administration. With three more rumored to be on the way out, (Mineta, Snow, Thompson) Bush would break Richard Nixon's(!) old record of nine. I guess Bush doesn't inspire as much loyalty as he would have you believe.

Update (12/2): Although he's not a Cabinet member, the respected John Danforth resigned today from his post as UN ambassador after a whopping five months on the job. If anyone voted for Bush based on who his advisors were, they were sold a bill of goods.

Carpetbagger has an excellent analysis on this.
