Rumsfeld to reisgn !

Yes! It's just being reported that Donald Rumsfeld is to resign, in the wake of the results of the US midterm elections! Marvellous news!
(He should have been sacked, Mr President. It is a pity you had to wait until the American people had expressed their views quite plainly before you were prepared to act. This does not reflect badly on the US politcal system, with its checks and balances, it reflects bady on you Mr President. Basically you are now a lame-duck President.)

There isn't much on the newswires yet because I'm just watching Bush speak live at the White House on BBC News24, but here is the first link I have.
