President Bush's communications director is stepping down to move to New York City with her husband, the White House announced Tuesday.
Nicolle Wallace has been in a long-distance marriage ever since her husband, Mark, became United Nations ambassador for management and reform [an equally impossible job, eh?] this spring. Wallace decided to stay temporarily in Washington, but this Friday she is leaving her job overseeing White House press strategy.
I wish Wallace well; Lord knows, she had a tough job. But Bush's media strategy has been pathetic and her departure opens the door, hopefully, for someone who will do a much, much better job.
