Obama Statement on Rumsfeld Resignation
U.S. Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) today released the following statement on the resignation of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld:
"Last night, the American people sent an overwhelming message to Washington that it's time to change our failed course in Iraq, and today's resignation of Donald Rumsfeld is a belated step in the right direction," said Obama. "But to truly end the ideological mismanagement of this war, we must replace not just a person, but a strategy, and that will take the work of both Democrats and Republicans finding common ground and common solutions in the weeks to come."
