Tony Snow announced today that he is leaving his job as White House press secretary on September 14 and will be replaced by deputy press secretary Dana Perino. Snow has been undergoing treatment for cancer. He gave no reason for leaving but recently told a conservative talk show host that he was leaving due to financial reasons, not for health reasons.
Snow is only one in a growing number who have decided to leave their positions with this administration (whether by choice or not..). My hope is that he won’t be the last to leave (Mr Cheney? Please? At least consider it..). Perhaps he could get a job full-time playing his flute..
