Homespun Symposium VI

For our sixth installment of the Homespun Bloggers' Symposium, our question comes from Ken at Esoteric * Diatribe. As with each week, when you respond on your blog, email marvin at marvinhutchens dot com with the link and it'll be included here.

This week's questions (and intro from Ken):

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld now finds himself in the midst of the bitter and often cruel politics which have become a hallmark of the D.C. political landscape. In the past few weeks Rumsfeld has weathered criticism over his handling of the ambush-like question planted by a reporter during a question and answer session with the troops, the defense secretary has received harsh indictments from the likes of John McCain and Trent Lott, and Rumsfeld has endured embarassing exposés fueled by Pentagon leaks.

Is all the controversy surrounding Rumsfeld justified? In your opinion, are these attacks on the defense secretary fair? And finally - borrowing a slightly modified line from The Clash - should he (Rumsfield) stay or should he go now?
