Addressing Plans For Second Term

This morning, President Bush held the first news conference since his big win on election night.

The President said he will continue to work hard in winning the war on terror. He said, "every American has a stake in the outcome of this war," and said he is ready for the job.

President Bush also called on the new Congress with its stronger Republican majority, to do its part to boost the economy, to fight frivolous lawsuits and to continue education reform.

He also spoke regarding the replacement of Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist, who recently revealed he has thyroid cancer. The President said he'll deal with that issue when Rehnquist steps down.

The President also addressed the speculation about changes to the cabinet; which includes the possibilities Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld and John Ashcroft could all submit their resignations. When asked if changes will take place, President Bush said he knows of the time his cabinet members have spent away from their families. And says he wants some of those who want to stay, to stay, meanwhile, he says changes are inevitable.
