Chertoff’s Days Numbered?

Bye-bye, Skeletor:

In the aftermath of the public revelation of the presidential "teleconference" and mounting criticism of the performance of Michael Chertoff, Administration sources told HUMAN EVENTS today that the secretary of Homeland Security has "only a few days left" in the Bush Cabinet.

As one source acquainted with the former federal prosecutor and U.S. appellate judge said under promise of anonymity, "They will give [Chertoff] a little time so it won't hurt his reputation too much, but he's probably got only a few days left."
The administration says no.

A senior administration official is refuting my source’s comments that Chertoff’s days are numbered.

“The President offered strong words of support for Secretary Chertoff on Tuesday in an interview with Elizabeth Vargas. Secretary Chertoff is serving in one of the most difficult positions in government and he is doing an excellent job.”
Yeah, well, I remember what happened to the last guy in that general area that the president thought was doing a heckuva job.

We shall see…
