Veterans Affairs Secretary Jim Nicholson, who came under fire earlier in the year in connection with Walter Reed, resigned on Tuesday. Time's Michael Weisskopf posits that President Bush will use the opportunity to appoint a veteran of Iraq or Afghanistan, in part to show the Administration's "new" commitment to serving veterans who served the U.S.

But the suggestion that Bush will appoint Tammy Duckworth, who ran as a Democrat for Congress last fall, seems a little far-fetched, even if she is apparently not going to run for Congress again in 2008. After all, what did Tammy Duckworth ever do for George W. Bush?
