White House spokesman resigns (UPDATE)

[image-1]White House press secretary Scott McClellan resigned this morning, and Karl Rove is relinquishing his control over policy coordination in order to focus more on political affairs in advance of the November midterm elections.

This is billed as part of the staff shakeup that was predicted when Joshua Bolten replaced Andrew Card as chief of staff earlier this week. There may be some Cabinet changes as well, although Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld isn't going anywhere, according to "the decider."

UPDATE: One blog is reporting that Fox News Channel anchor Tony Snow has been offered the press secretary position.
