Via AMERICABlog and the York Daily News, we learn that Tom Ridge is considering resigning as Secretary of Homeland Security should Bush be re-elected. The reason? Could it be the pressure of trying to protect the US without the power and budget promised by his boss? Nope (well, that might be part of it).
The reason? On his salary, $175,600 (with free medical insurance), he's worried he won't be able to afford to pay for college for his two children.
I wonder how long before Tommy becomes a Democrat?
Welcome to the real world.
