Very interesting article... notice that Ashcroft (the Hawk) is interested in hanging on for another adminisitration, but Collin Powel (the Dove) was
reported to be retiring after this time around, and then very publicly refuted this assertion... sounds a bit engineered, dont you think?
Also goes along with Whispers....
Ashcroft decides against running for political office
By Kevin Johnson
WASHINGTON -- Attorney General John Ashcroft says he is ruling out any future campaign for elective office, but he indicates that he would like to
continue serving the administration if President Bush is elected to a second term.
In an interview with USA TODAY, Ashcroft, who served as Missouri auditor in 1973 and later was elected state attorney general, governor and U.S.
senator, said recently that elective politics have passed him by since his confirmation as the nation's top law enforcement official two years ago.
