Warner Calls on Rumsfeld to Abandon Defense Position

Former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner said in Iowa Thursday that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld should resign, joining some other Democrats eyeing the 2008 presidential nomination.

But by saying Rumsfeld should step down, he set himself apart from other potential presidential candidates in his party, including New York Sen. Hillary Clinton and Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack.

"The line of mistakes in this war is almost unprecedented," he told The Des Moines Register, including "the failure to make a change in the architect in Rumsfeld, with unprecedented calls for his resignation from the armed services — and those are just the public calls."
