Rumsfeld Error (Almost) Over, Gates Approved

The Senate Armed Services Committee has just voted unanimously to approve the nomination of Robert Gates to replace Donald Rumsfeld as Defense Secretary.

The nomination now moves to the full Senate, which is expected to overwhelmingly approve Gates tomorrow.

Last week the President said we were "definitely winning" in Iraq; today, Gates said what everyone else in the world knows -- we are not winning in Iraq. Tony Snow says that Gates and Bush are in agreement.
