ABSTRACT
The author speculates on which senior members of the administration of U.S. president George W. Bush would be likely to serve in a second term. In public, Bush team members say they're too busy to think about their future; in private, the jockeying for potential positions during a second Bush term is well underway. Take national-security adviser Condoleezza Rice: once a surefire contender to move to the State Department, Rice's associates now insist she's keen to step out of the limelight. Possible replacements: Robert Blackwill, Rice's strategic adviser, and Paul Wolfowitz, the deputy Defense secretary. Meanwhile, at State, the working assumption among Colin Powell's aides has long been that he would not serve in a second Bush term. Paul Bremer, the chief civilian administrator of Iraq, is the current front runner for Powell's job. Even the Pentagon looks to be shaking things up. Officials want a successor who will cement Donald Rumsfeld's changes. Despite all the whispers, administration officials insist that Bush--who could yet persuade any of his exhausted senior staffers to stick with him--isn't thinking about personnel decisions just yet.
