Actually a good event-strengthening the Cabinet for the days ahead when the Dems dig in their heels to wait out the end of the Bush Presidency.

According to the NYT: “Mr. Paulson formally accepted the job the next day, May 21, a fact Mr. Bush hid when asked at a news conference four days later whether he had any indication that Mr. Snow intended to leave soon.

“No, he has not talked to me about resignation,” Mr. Bush replied then, resorting to what the White House acknowledged Tuesday was an artful attempt to keep the move secret.””

Oh Oh! I smell hearings! I smell impeachment for withholding this information from the MSM!
