Bob's fearless prediction: Remember how Harvey Pitt announced his resignation at about 7 pm on election day? I predict that his replacement as Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission will be announced on the same day as the war against Iraq starts for real. (If we peaceniks somehow stop it, Pitt will remain at SEC at least until the next election day.) And it's going to be bad, very bad. Rudy Giuliani? Jeffrey Skilling? Donald Trump? Jack Welch? Michael Milken? Neil Bush? What's Charles Keating up to these days? After the Kissinger thing, I wouldn't rule out any of them. And because of the war, it won't be front page news anywhere, and it won't even make the crawl on CNN or FoxNews.
