Why did Kerick withdraw?

Kerik withdraws from homeland security nomination
Yeah, sure, nanny stuff. Not to mentiona very spotty record in Saudi Arabia, some serious suspicion about his earnings, and no evidence that the guy was good at what he did. Most of all, weren't there some recent high level resignations in homeland security? I wonder if the guys that do the real work were in panic mode. Kerik looked like a ridiculous choice.

The real loser, as Emily says, is Giuliani. He'd pushed Kerik relentlessly. Bush is not a forgiving man. Giuliani has a lot to make up for.
