Bush searches for a new Commander in Chief, Day 3

The Washington Post reports that 4 generals have now turned down the job.

Last night Daily Show correspondent John Oliver weighed in on Bush's search for a new Commander in Chief.

Crooks & Liars also has the complete video segment here.

I always thought Cheney was the real Commander in Chief but it sounds like national security adviser Stephen Hadley is the only guy in the Oval Office who actually does any work. Asked about the proposed appointment of someone to oversee the Iraq war, Hadley replied:
"My goal is to make the person really work for and be seen to work for the president, and be able to speak in his name... I can do it, and I do do it, but I can't do it and North Korea and Iran and all the other things I've got to do." (He said he will jettison the title "execution manager" to avoid unintended double meaning.)
