Good Move


In case you missed it; last week Bob Schieffer announced he would be retiring later this summer as the host of Face the Nation.

This set off immediate speculation as to who his replacement would be.

Sunday, Schieffer put an end to that speculation.

John Dickerson, The CBS News political director known for his telegenic good looks, calm demeanor and professional prognostications, will take over when Schieffer officially steps aside.

The rapidity with which this decision was made suggests CBS News knew the Schieffer announcement was coming and lined up a replacement before an internal power struggle could ensue.
