Card shuffling

The resignation this morning of White House chief of staff Andrew Card does not strike me as being one of those events that galvanizes the nation. It fails to pass what I call the Hey Honey Test, as administered by the average John Q. Citizen, watching the TV news in his kitchen.
To wit: "Hey, honey, drop that sponge and get over here -- didja know that Andrew Card is leaving his job?!"
See what I mean?
On the other hand, there are things that can be said about this ostensibly inside-the-Beltway development. But I will say them in print tomorrow morning.
