No big surprise here -- Bush has named Porter Goss as his choice to replace George Tenet.

Given the current climate, I'd say there's about a zero percent chance of him getting Senate confirmation. Rather than pick a reasonable candidate, Bush picked one of the boys, and is undoubtedly hoping to cow the Senate Dems into letting Goss through with a full-court "Democrats show how much they hate America when they don't support our choice for CIA head" press.

That schtick has gotten old and stale, though. Very, very stale. Given all the national security ammo the Bushies have handed their opponents (Plame, Khan, etc. etc.) this could be a very entertaining fight.
