Colin Powell's resignation as U.S. secretary of state means George W. Bush will begin a second term vowing diplomatic fence-mending minus the one
true diplomat in his cabinet.
National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice is expected to be named Powell's replacement.
Powell, once described as the only brake in a runaway administration that often viewed diplomacy as a nuisance, announced yesterday he will be
stepping down, after he and the U.S. president apparently agreed the time was right for the change. Powell will formally take his leave once his
successor is named.
