It's Condi!

Dr. Condoleezza Rice is President Bush's choice to replace Colin Powell as Secretary of State.

Senior administration sources confirmed that Rice would be Bush's choice. The news came just hours after the White House announced Powell had submitted his resignation.

ABC News has also learned that Deputy National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley will likely replace Rice as national security adviser.

The announcement comes as a sort of birthday present for Rice, who turned 50 on Sunday.

Don't be surprised if Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge are next on the chopping block.

I'm sure the leftists will talk about the "revolving door," or about "rats deserting a sinking ship," but this looks like more strategic planning by the Bush Administration.

Rumsfeld's job of transforming the US Military isn't finished yet. He's not going anywhere. Ridge is likely to leave.
