Christie Whitman Resigns From EPA

Often at odds with the White House on environmental policy, Whitman resigns as head of the Environmental Protection Agency.

"Whitman had a history of clashing with the White House, starting with the president's abrupt decision to withdraw from the international global warming treaty. She had been the administration's point person in rolling back environmental protections initiated by previous administrations."

Thanks to Chris Steins
