East Wing Shakeup!
There have been three high-profile resignations from the mysterious and powerful East Wing this week, as Laura Bush's reign of terror finally begins to take its unimaginable toll on the employees of the shadowy "other half" of the White House.
Today's soon-to-be-disappeared employee is the most high-profile of them all: First Lady spokeswoman Susan Whitson, who's leaving ostensibly to "start a family." Paul Bedard reports:
Hers was the third major personnel announcement from the East Wing this week. The first lady earlier announced the hiring of a new pastry chef and the departure of social secretary Lea Berman and the hiring of her replacement.
Who's next? The White House calligrapher?
