Contrary to some rumors, the first to flee the Bush administration is apparently Iraq war point man and deputy national security advisor Robert Blackwill.

One official said Blackwill had always intended to leave after the presidential election, and informed National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice of his plans a few weeks ago. He sent an e-mail to National Security Council co-workers Friday announcing his resignation.


This one is rather unexpected. I've yet to see a reason given as to Blackwill's motivation for moving on, but he had been mentioned several times this summer as likely to get Condi Rice's spot if she moves up to better quarters. More to come, no doubt.
