 Rats fleeing the ship: 8

In the continuing saga of what's shaping up as a major second-term shakeup, CNN is reporting that two senior-level White House sources told them that Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, and Health and Human Services chief Tommy Thompson, have resigned.

The White House on Monday announced the resignations of Secretary of State Colin Powell, Education Secretary Rod Paige, Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman and Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham. Veneman had said last week she wanted to stay. Attorney General John Ashcroft and Commerce Secretary Don Evans quit soon after the president's re-election.

Thompson, and Ridge's resignations would bring the number of rats fleeing the sinking ship of state Cabinet chiefs leaving to eight out of a total of 15.
