Some bad news for those out there who voted for Bush this time expecting him to change – and for the rest of us:

White House Chief of Staff Andrew H. Card Jr. and the director of presidential personnel, Dina Powell, held a conference call on Thursday with agency heads and their White House liaisons and assured them that although all appointees serve at the pleasure of the president, there will be no universal request for resignations. The decision reflects both Bush’s view that his government is working well, and his determination to move aggressively to pass ambitious legislation before he starts being viewed as a lame duck, officials said. A White House official said the reprieve also reflects the premium Bush puts on consistency as part of his management style.
