“With three years left in a lame duck presidency, with an exhausted and beaten-down administration that has pushed the envelope on several fronts with mixed success, I don’t think it should come as a surprise that the President might have considered this vacancy an opportunity to remind his bunch that he remembers and rewards loyalty and fidelty. ‘I know it’s 2005,’ you can imagine him telegraphing, ‘I know we are in a tail spin, Katrina hurt, Iraq hurts, our domestic agenda is stuck in the mud. But don’t give up. Don’t be tempted to leak, to leave, to surrender. Stick with me and you, too, will earn your reward.'”
