DANA PERINO (CO-HOST): I thought where they left the story yesterday was probably the best place that it was, which is that the president asked for the resignation after this eroding trust. If you can't trust the national security adviser in the administration, if there's a trust problem within the West Wing and in the administration, that's going to continue to be a problem. So I thought that they acted decisively, even if it was maybe a couple weeks late. But, they get it done, they get it in a box, that's the story of the day. By reopening the issue again in this way, which is basically like picking at the scab, it's like, OK, but what was the worst part for you, Mr. President? Was it the eroding trust, or the fact of the intelligence community was going after him and maybe in an inappropriate way?
