Hubbard flip-flopped on staying at the White House.

Earlier today, Al Hubbard, chairman of President Bush’s National Economic Council, announced that he was resigning from the White House after serving three years. But in an interview on the Fox Business Channel two weeks ago, Hubbard gave no indication of his desire to leave. In fact, he said that he was “very happy where I am”:

Just two weeks ago, Hubbard appeared with Glick on FBN. She asked him if he would remain in his position for the rest of President Bush’s time in office. Glick asked if he would consider taking a job in the private sector, such as CEO positions at Citigroup or Merrill Lynch. Hubbard responded, “That’s nice of you to even suggest I would be considered…I’m very happy where I am.”
